Stewart and O'Reilly clash in debate.....It was actually VERY GOOD!
I have to give both these men A LOT OF CREDIT, I mean A LOT of Credit.
I'm sure everyone here knows the way I am towards Fox News and their pundits, but Bill O'Reilly actually did a pretty decent job against Jon Stewart, to see the debate you have to pay for it, here is the site if you guys are interested:
Of course if you don't want to pay to see it....well, you guys know what to do

I paid for it (hey, half to charity) but I didn't get a chance to watch it until last night. O'Reilly kind of handed Stewart his butt on a platter towards the beginning but Stewart came back and, ultimately, were it a real debate I'd call it a tie. They both made some incredible points and they both said some stupid stuff too. But they actually spoke and debated about the issues and managed to make it entertaining. I didn't think I'd end up agreeing with as much of what O'Reilly had to say, but I did. It didn't change my outlook, but it did open some thoughts up.
Also, after watching this I feel reaffirmed in my position that if these two ran the parties the US would have no troubles whatsoever, simply because they actually talk and, more than that, they listen to each other as well. They find common ground and work from there. I highly recommend people watch it if only for that.

I would also recommend you guys to watch this debate, and I didn't know that half the money you pay to watch it goes to charity, so that's awesome of them to do that.
Overall, like I said, I was very impressed with both men.
Like usual, Stewart brought his "A" game and even though he made some jokes, I could tell he was serious and he valued O'Reilly's input.
O'Reilly really surprised me, and I think it was very noble of him to do this debate fully knowing that the majority of the crowd was on Stewart's side."The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness..."

I think what makes it so great when these two get together is not even so much the discourse and issues they discuss or that they actually discuss them instead of force feeding rhetoric, but the fact that they can argue for two hours and, when it's over, shake hands and mean it. Maybe even go for a couple drinks or something. They separate their politics from their everyday life. Because of that, they can take what the other says with thought instead of annoyance, anger and hatred. I love it.
