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” will clash in the event, dubbed “the Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium.”
This live debate will be streamed online on Oct. 6 from Lisner Auditorium on the campus of George Washington University in the District. The price is $4.95, with half of the profits donated to a number of unspecified charities.
In a statement, Mr. 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.
The show’s judges — Miss Carey, Miss Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson — and host Ryan Seacrest attended a news conference in New York on Monday after auditioning singers for the Fox music reality TV series.
All the judges burst into laughter.
Miss Carey confessed she’s “never been a fan” of singing competition shows.
“I’ll be completely honest,” she said. “But I realize what this show has done for such talented artists and truly giving them careers.”
“Did I do that? I didn’t mean that as a final gesture,” she said with a smile. “I’m sorry.”
