Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly will debate each other about politics and the presidential candidates during a live event to be streamed. O’Reilly announced the event on The O’Reilly Factor, on Monday night: ” The nation wins because there will be plenty of no-spin analysis about serious issues. Stewart wins because he finally makes the big time, and I win because I can make fun of Stewart…The format is exactly like the presidential debates, without all the phoniness and pomposity.”
The debate, “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium” and is set for 8PM 10/6 at George Washington University in DC. Tickets for the live show are $4.95 and half the profits are earmarked for charities. It will be moderated by CNN anchor E.D. Hill.
“You win because we kept the price very low and it will be a fun evening,” O’Reilly said during his Monday show. “Stewart wins because he finally makes the big time, and I win because I can make fun of Stewart.”
