Jon Stewart, Bill O'Reilly to Duke it Out on Pay Per View

Would you pony up to see "fake" news-meister Jon Stewart go head to head with right wing tough-talker Bill O'Reilly? They're counting on your answer being "yes." 

The two hosts, who have sparred quite a few times in the past, will be having an election-oriented mega-debate called "O’Reilly v Stewart 2012: The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium", or "The Rumble 2012. " Instead of being televised, the debate will be available live at with users able to watch the online for a $4.95 fee (proceeds will go to charity).

Stewart is calling it "The Worst Thanksgiving Ever." Sounds just about right. I just personally hope Stewart stands up to O'Reilly on the substantive issues in addition to bringing his humor to the debate.
