Jon Stewart, Bill O’Reilly plan Oct. 6 debate

Made-for-Internet event to raise money for charities

Bill O’Reilly and Jon Stewart will face off in a made-for-Internet 90-minute debate next month.

“The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium” will be offered for $4.95 as a live streaming event or download. The debate will be held at George Washington U.’s Lisner Auditorium. Half of the net profits will be donated to “a number of charitable causes,” according to the news release announcing the event.

The political sparring between Fox News’ O’Reilly and “The Daily Show’s” Stewart will come three days after the first skedded debate between President Obama and GOP hopeful Mitt Romney.

“Rumble” appears to be a joint production of O’Reilly’s Straight Talk Inc. banner and Stewart’s Busboy Prods.

In advance of the 2010 midterms, Stewart and Stephen Colbert staged a rally on the Mall in Washington, D.C., drawing more than 200,000 people to what turned out to have a message of improving the political discourse.
