O'Reilly Vs. Stewart 2010 (Video)

In a clip that’s sure to be passed around from political junkie to junkie, two prolific and drastically different media figures faced off against each other this week. Returning to the show for the first time since 2004, The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart visits The O’Reilly Factor to face his ideological opposite, Bill O’Reilly. The two threw the standard punches (Fox News blows panic out of proportion, Stewart’s audience is made up of pot-smoking slackers), but the conversation ultimately becomes a sharp criticism of the media. No one really won, it was kind of a draw, but one should find it riveting no matter what side they’re on. The random edits, however, makes you wonder what may have been left in the cutting room floor.
