I didn't mean he literally brought his studio audience. It's just a shame there were clearly far more of his demographic in attendance.

They applauded out of politeness really, it paled to the reaction Stewart's comments recieved.

I just didn't like the premise of the event. It was pretty clear there would be more young democrats in attendance than Fox news watchers and it made the whole thing like 'dunk the teacher' at the school fair.

Watched this last night before I went to bed. I have to say that I admire the mutual respect that Stewart and O'Reilly have for eachother, which can be seen towards the end. They heavily disagree on alot of matters and scold eachother for it, but they don't 'hate' eachother.

Certainly alot better than what Congress can do.

Yep. Americans are actually largely in agreement on most things.

I don't think that the American public are, I think that their governing parties are.

I was judging from a poll from my school, so the results are probably not accurate to the entire nation; but on most issues (here) people are on the same side of the fence.

Hooray for not clarifying things!

I think the most diversified answers dealt with welfare and things of that nature.

Never had an issue with waiting for surgerys. The only time I've ever had to wait is because I already had the same surgery and they have to wait a certain amount of time to let everything recover properly before they go in again.

To be fair, that happens all the time to O'Reilly on his own show.
