    That being said, Mr. O'Reilly really is a nice guy when he isn't on tv spouting inane drivel.
    You've met him and had dinner with him?

    I'd say most politicans don't have any idea what they're talking about, to be honest.

    IQ tests are garbage. They have no method for measuring equally important concepts such as emotional intelligence. If you base human intelligence on how closely a person resembles Commander Data, then you give IQ tests much more weight than I do. He's a moron. The truth lies in his inability to overcome his own bias. He is unable, or unwilling to admit obvious truth. There is little difference between a Republican and Democrat in Washington. Both are short-sighted, big-spending aberrations. When the rallying cry of your party is a social issue that's already been decided by the Supreme Court decades ago, it doesn't say much about the intelligence of your followers. Republicans are no better with their absurd amounts of military welfare. They're two sides of the same coin, and Stewart, high IQ or not, is a clueless twat for not realizing it.

    This may come as a surprise to you, but people who disagree with your politics/views are not necessary doing so out of stupidity.

    can't stand that Jon Stewart his show is atrocious! Its him spending 40 minutes making sarcastic remarks and very annoying moans and groans. i feel bad for the youth of today who falls for his 1 dimensional shtick.... its so pedestrian, and so predicable. It appeals to 3rd grade level intelligence.

    poor kids today brainwashed by this misguided bafoon.
    Stewart actually pokes fun at the flaws and errors of people to prove a point. He does give information on given topics, such as the outburst in the middle-east. He said the video contributed, but there was also the Muslim Brotherhood and whatnot to incite the crowd. Yes, he is a democrat and will be biased to one side. But Papa Bear is republican and biased to that side.

    Not at all. I may not care for O'reilly's politics, but I think he's a brilliant man nonetheless. Stewart may not be as cunning as O'reilly, but he's snarky as all hell, and being a professional comedian means that he's spent his career learning how to improvise on the spot. I can see this being a truly epic debate.

    Whether you believe me or not, I genuinely have no clue who is going to come out ahead here. And personally, I don't care. Sharing opinions should never be a contest. My only opinion on this debate is that it will be absolutely fascinating to watch.

    I've also seen a lot of his interviews off the air. Why are you so hell bent on trying to prove he's some sort of monster? People can have differing political views without being morons. He's smart enough to get good ratings on tv.

    I don't agree with most of the things he says but that doesn't mean he's a bad person.

    Bill O'Reilly is just a loudmouth gasbag. On the other hand, Jon Stewart is just a shill for the cheap joke machine. Stewart will win because he has a more involved and open worldview. But the truth is, I'd rather watch O'Reilly versus Colbert. That would be a truly epic demolition...

    Stewart is actually a boss,allthough he can be slightly irritating.

    O'Reilly is just a dumbass =P

    It's 22 minutes long and I doubt political satire appeals to 3rd graders.

    Not a bad person? Are you frakking kidding me? He makes a massacre of every single of his guests he doesn't agree with; he doesn't let them talk, he doesn't let them finish, he doesn't let them put forth their arguments, he insults them. Ugh, i couldn't really give half a frak what he's like irl, he's one of the biggest morons i've ever seen in my life when he's on air.

    Bill O'Reilly is a jackass, but I assure you his bumbling idiocy displayed on his show is a front. The guy knows that what he says is bullcrap, but he's all about making his money.

    As far as the debate goes, I think it's safe to say that Jon Stewart will take the win, but at the same time I feel confident that the two of them actually get along quite well off camera.

    I'm sorry, I really am. But I have seen over the past 11 years how O'reilly has become the arrogant and ignorant mans spokesperson. CUT MIC!

    It's like watching Sesame Street where the Count tells you that 2 + 2 actually makes 147. 4? What 4?! The extremists made 4 exist! Adhere to your American roots and embrace your belief that 2 + 2 actually means 147!

    Someone who thinks that tides cannot be explained, is just plain stupid. It boggles my mind that he can say stuff like this and have such high viewership numbers, lawl.
