Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly Are Getting Along Great Ahead of Debate

Cable news personalities Bill O'Reilly and Jon Stewart are set to debate each other this weekend in The Rumble 2012, a live event in Washington DC that'll also be streamed over the internet. Last night, O'Reilly dropped by The Daily Show for an interview, and, while he and Stewart didn't agree on much, they seemed to be getting along famously. The talk went pretty smoothly, and it seems like both hosts are focusing on comedy for the debate, based off their choice of coaches: Stewart's Stephen Colbert being Stewart's coach and O'Reilly's is 98-year-old comedian "Professor" Irwin Corey. If how well they were getting along last night is any indication, Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly might end up maing The Rumble 2012 the friendliest political debate ever.
