NEW YORK — Pick your pundit when Bill O'Reilly and Jon Stewart face off for a special 90-minute debate about the 2012 presidential race.
The host of Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" and the anchor of Comedy Central's fake newscast "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" have announced they will clash in the event, dubbed "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium."
This live debate will be streamed online on Oct. 6 from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. The price is $4.95, with one-half of the profits donated to a number of unspecified charities.
In a statement, Stewart quipped that "The Rumble" will be entertaining for all, including "people who just enjoy yelling."
It's why Al Gore invented the Internet, the announcement added.
