Could you say the NY Yankees are Derek Jeter's team?

Or is Jeter just *within* the Yankee outfit?

Chaz, if this was about Hannity or Limbaugh (or similar) & their distribution company, you'd be on the other side of the argument. Your view on this matter is ideologically-driven.

One of my favorite news segments is on Fridays on NPR...a Left/Right view of politics with EJ Dionne (left) and David Brooks (right). Much as I appreciate the respectful back & forth that goes on between these two, it sometimes doesn't feed my need for 'red meat' politics.

EJ Dionne clearly is a lefty, and nicely eloquent, but is sometimes too 'soft' for my preferences- I've never seen him in person until tonight, which reinforces this soft-left view in an Alan Alda-kinda way.

This said, Dionne has a historical sense that is uncommon amongst the reactionary left, and an ability to rationally state his position in a way that is engaging, and unusual amongst the 'red meat' hyperbole of MSNBC. He is worth a listen.

With all the blood in the water from Rmoney's self-inflicted lacerations, Stewart is on fire here...

It's almost like he senses that the enemy is back on it's heels, and he's gonna put it down....for good.

The Daily Show won it's 10th consecutive Emmy last night...

...in spite of Colbert & Fallon's desperate attempts to keep him from the stage.


Couldn't have happened to a nicer show, as far as I'm concerned.

So, I heard there's going to be a Stewart/O'Reilly debate a week after the first POTUS debate.

Should be fun to watch.

'The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium' will be mano a mano, snark for snark between 'The Daily Show' and 'The O'Reilly Factor' hosts.

Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly are taking their status as BFFs best frenemies forever to the next level early next month when they square off in a 90-minute, pay per-view event in the nation's capital.

Dubbed "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium," the face-to-face meeting Oct. 6 will be moderated by CNN anchor E.D. Hill and will be modeled after a mock presidential debate: 60 minutes of conversation between the host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" and Fox's top-rated "The O'Reilly Factor," then 30 minutes of audience questions.

The trash-talking between the pundits, who sparred frequently and appeared on each other's program, has already begun.

"I told him we'll pick up all the hair mousse he needs," O'Reilly said in a telephone interview. "There's not an area on earth where I'm not stronger or more compelling than him."

Asked what area might prove to be O'Reilly's biggest weakness, Stewart replied, "Obviously, I think the biggest vulnerability will be his thoughts and ideas the things he thinks in his brain."

The curious can watch the live-streamed debate for $4.95. "We kept [the price] low. We wanted everybody to get in the tent," said O'Reilly.

So far, interest appears high: Tickets to the live show at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium, which seats about 1,500, sold out almost as soon as they went on sale Tuesday, despite costing $100 a pop.

O'Reilly and Stewart say their goal is not to enlighten or edify but merely to entertain and raise money for charity in the process. Half of the net proceeds from "The Rumble" will go to a number of causes selected by Stewart and O'Reilly.

OReilly isn't use to having someone rebut his dog and pony show...Fox needs to fire their producer over that gaffe.....

I paid the $4.95 to have the debate live streamed to my puter.

I was very disappointed, in fact turned it off after 30 minutes.

O'Reilly was himself, such an easy target to nail with all his ideological outright lies.

And John Stewart seemed more interested in being a comedian than going after him

Stewart was weak, did not challenge O'Reilly, it was a waste of time.

That's a shame to hear, Norton.
