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.

i disagree with Norton.

17 minutes in and Stewart is crushing Bill.

sorry Norton, not laughing that much over here.

30 minutes in and it's the real deal and not a comedy act.

Ok, point taken Nature

Maybe I just expected too much out of Stewart, just me.

I think I get three more views with my payment, maybe I'll watch it again and see if I can pick up what you saw in Stewart crushing the fat bloviator.

I probably was in a lousy frame of mind after the Wednesday night "debate"

Just finished watching the smackdown...

The first hour was entertaining, but less than enlightening- they were both pretty much in their 'schpiel & schtick' mode, which I've seen plenty of in the past. It's fun, but didn't really step outside of their usual stuff.

The last half hour was much more engaging (the 'audience questions' portion)...they were more relaxed and genuine in their dialogue, and though they are clearly ideologically opposed, there was a level of respect for each others commentary that is so absent from today's political discourse.

I'm with Stewart about 96% of the time, but there were several points in the last half hour where I found O'Reilly to be spot-on. (It gave me the creeps.) In particular, at 1:07, and at 1:27.

A good time, and worth every minute.

Last night's show was particularly brilliant, the bit about Sesame Street was just too funny.

Jon Stewart summed up the GOP’s positions on rape, abortion, and conception: "If a woman wants to have a baby via IVF she can not. Rape? She has to."

I know. That's a ridiculous thing to say about the GOP.

Why, then, is there a regular stream of such bullshit from the ExtremistRight®?

Oct. 24, 2012
Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock became the latest Republican to stir up controversy – and potential trouble for the Romney campaign – when he said during a debate that "even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen."
