Amazing how a debate between these two is so much more interesting and informative then the current presidential debate.

It's better if you purchase it. It's only $5 and half goes to charity

It was a good debate. Thoroughly enjoyed it and there were a few good laughs as well.

Stewart came out on top substantively, for the most part.

Some real great points made about corporate welfare vs welfare for citizens.

The other half goes to Bill O'Reilly most likely. I'd rather watch it for free and donate my money to local causes like Canuck Place or Doctor's Without Borders, and my local SPCA.

It'd be generic to say that this was better than the actual presidential debate, but seriously, it was so much better than the actual presidential debate.

I feel like both of these guys could do a better job than some of the hacks they have running.

Both really smart guys. Although I don't really agree with Bill O'Reilly, he does know what he's talking about but I agree with the post above. Stewart 2016!!!

Thanks for sharing the link.

That was interesting, I gotta get myself a portable ramp that lifts me up and down whenever I get an ego boost :P

Gotta say that Stewart did an excellent job.

I like guys like Stewart and Bill Maher, and will admit a dislike for FOX without really watching any of their programming.

First time seeing O'Reilly extensively, and while I don't agree with some of his ideas, he doesn't really come off as a nut job. Thought he made some good arguments and good discussion.

Haha, great debate. As usual, I agree mostly with Jon Stewart (guy's a champ), but O'Reilly doesn't come off as a douche as he usually does. I've never been a fan of the way he brings people onto his show and intimidates and badgers them. He did a good job in his own right, the guy knows what he's talking about.

Honestly, Stewart probably WOULD make a good president, lol. <- half-joking

RIP LB RR PD

I have to get around to watching this. As much as I disagree with Bill O'Reilly on most things hes a good sport and makes a good foil to Stewart.

Kinda funny how it mirrors real life, the republican stooge playing the foil for the democrat orator .

I think it's rad when balls beats natural talent

I watched this last night, and I was impressed with both sides.

I can honestly say, with the exception of a couple times flipping channels & seeing him for a minute here or there, I didnt really know Bill O'Reilly from much more than Daily Show & Colbert Report clips.

He had SOME fair points, but of course, in the end, Stewart came across on most points as the victor.
Hearing O'Reilly proclaim he likes Obama was a bit shocking. Didnt expect ANYONE from FOX News to ever say that.

Also - The Colbert training session with Stewart on TDS last week was pure gold. Right down to Clucker Carlson.

Bill O'Reilly went to Harvard, and he has said on air many times that he likes Obama. Here is one thing that will shock many people back home: O'Reilly's ratings are higher than all of CNN's evening programing combined. The problem for most Canadians is that the only thing they have heard about Fox News is second hand information. Also, for many years, they never had a chance to watch the channel for themselves and the only cable news network that they could watch was CNN.

good ratings does not always equal good programing or unbiased level head reporting.

Fox News is available here. I can't give O'Reilly any credit for now publishing two assassin novels against noted democratic leaders, the last one Killing Kennedy; the end of Camelot really only accomplishes rallying up the far right towards some kind of patriotic pride at the death of a leader.

Anyways, back to Fox News, the cable news channel run by the same Rupert Murdoch charged with illegal hacking and phone tapping. If it's not blatant of the lies that this particular networks serves up on a daily basis then I am wasting my time talking to you. O'Reilly, while being one of the more coherent ones on that channel, once was dependant upon the spill over viewers from Glen Beck. This is a network which continuously refers to President Obama as Mr. Obama, a network which uses Donald Trump's opinion on political views, a network which promotes tea party endeavours and finally a network which has not made the smallest effort to be partisan. This is also a 'news' channel which promoted the notion that extending the debt ceiling would mean borrowing more... a notion which led to the default.

Fox News channel assumes it's viewers to be like-minded in their inability to coherently form an argument. Instead they go off on tangents about Obama's birth certificate, the notion that Obama wishes to lead a communist revival, the denial to acknowledge Obama's hand in the bin Laden killing, and just this past week an utter refusal to acknowledge the decline in the unemployment rate from September's numbers. Name one thing that this news channel has been accurate about and we'll talk; for the most part however it has a stream of lies using pundits as a source, and not real numbers or facts.

So Fox News is now on Canadian basic cable? The last time I was home, it was avaliable as a specialty channel on Shaw.

You do know that it is the same Rupert that owns Fox Broadcast network too? The shows in prime time on that channel are definitely the hallmark for social conservatism.

Also, I can say you do not watch Fox News. The reason why I call your bluff is that their "commentators" do not go there. The one that you could say may have is no longer on the network (Glenn Beck). Actually, they vociferously defend against the people portraying those conspiracy ideas. And the news broadcasts are down the middle.

As for September's unemployment numbers, have you read the headlines today? You do know that a major state did not submit its unemployment numbers to be calculated for the third quarter. With their inclusion, the unemployment rate would have went up.

I said 'once relied upon Glen Beck', I acknowledge that he no longer has a show. Fox unfortunately is not down the middle, and yes it is available through shaw, basic cable doesn't really exist anymore.

Still waiting on that one thing they've been accurate about...
