Bill O'Reilly and Jon Stewart to Debate Deadline

Political pundits Bill O'Reilly, host of Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor," and Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," have agreed to get together for a 90-minute debate, dubbed "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium," reports Deadline.com.

The event, in which the two will talk about the current presidential election, will be live streamed and viewers wishing to watch it will have to pay for the privilege.

The two men have squared off a number of times over the years in lively and sometimes heated political battles, including making appearances on each other's shows.

The encounter is set for Oct. 6 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. O'Reilly mentioned the debate on his show last night, saying, “In order to illuminate the vital issues in the upcoming presidential election, Stewart and I will debate man to man, eye to eye -- well, not really, he’s a tiny guy."
