Jon Stewart to Visit O’Reilly’s Bizarro No Spin Zone
February 3, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart will make a guest appearance on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, on both Wednesday and Thursday’s edition of Bill O’Reilly’s show. The Fox News network says that the two will chat about media bias, President Obama and the current political landscape. The discussion between the two diverse media personalities should be interesting, considering the polar opposite views held by O’Reilly and Stewart. O’Reilly recently drew criticism for suggesting that the CIA should kidnap Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and waterboard Speaker of the House Pelosi.
Stewart appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show in September 2004 while, promoting his book, “America, the Book: A Citizen’s Guide to Democracy Inaction.” And the outspoken and frequently crass O’Reilly has appeared on Stewart’s “The Daily Show” three times, most recently in November 2008.
Jon Stewart exposed Bill O’Reilly’s hypocrisy last year, in the wake of O’Reilly complaining about intrusive paparazzi, when he sends his own producer to relentlessly hound media personalities.
“I think my favorite part about ‘The Factor’ is that they have no trouble reconciling their defense of celebrities’ right to privacy with their intimidation of everyone else,” quipped Stewart.
