Last week, The Daily Show as abuzz with news of the debate between Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly.
I must be a bad listener, because I had no idea it was a paid Internet event and not a TV broadcast until the day of. I texted regular-reading Luis V. to whine about it.
I mean, five bucks to watch something that I wanted available for gratis? Really?
Luis was some help, as he said we could find afterwards in some form. I still didn’t know if I would find it for free.
God, I sound like the 47% of the population that Romney doesn’t care about.
The next day, Tina sent me a review in Chicago Tribune that made the event seem lackluster. It read that O’Reilly’s and Stewart’s shows are much better than this event. It validated our curiosity over whether we should have
Later we learned that the event was streamed onto YouTube, so we checked it out last night.
We couldn’t disagree more with the review we read. I thought the “debate” was highly entertaining and funny.
Tina even made the blasphemous comment that O’Reilly didn’t come off nearly as arrogant as he usually does.
I thought it was hilarious that he used children’s-style visuals to guide his viewers thought his points.
But all in all, I thought it was a great show. One point five hours of non-stop sparring is not easy, and maybe that’s where people felt slighted.

Anyone else watch it and have thoughts?
Regular-reading Xina posted a new link on FB for the entire video. Don’t know if it will stay up:
