7:34pm Overall, it is an enjoyable debate for me. I am glad that I paid the $5 to watch the show. It was fun. And even taking away the “fun” factor, it was such an engaging and insightful debate that I’ve learned a lot from Jon Stewart and even from Bill O’Reilly in knowing the kind of things he told his Fox News viewers and how some of the claims can be debunked.
6:48pm Cute quote. Will find more interesting quotes to post later. @ZackFord Stewart on media bias: Fox News is an overreaction, an auto-immune disease of media representation, the lupus of media. #rumble2012
6:45pm A light hearted comment that is cute. @OmarjSakr Someone make Jon Stewart president please. #Therumble2012 #Stewart2016
6:31pm Whats wrong wanting to be hungry! @SalemAlQassimi “How is it that a company gets tax cuts and that’s for businessmen, but when people need food stamps it’s mooching?!”Stewart #TheRumble2012
6:29pm Stewart putting O’Reilly on the spot by asking about the disability his father gets. @ZackFord Stewart claims O’Reilly’s father filed for disability, O’Reilly says it was okay because it was from the company, not gov’t. #rumble2012
6:19pm If ALL politicians learn how to engage people! @HashigoZake A room full of people watching #rumble2012 live in Wellington on a Sunday afternoon.
6:16pm Jon fighting back Big Bird (PBS) which is just a tiny tiny amount in the massive budget and forget about the expenses in WAR! @bear_foot Stewart: “We are merely weeks from being a failed state or, even worse, Greece. To solve it is to kill Big Bird.” #Rumble2012
6:07pm Jon Stewart: “My friend Billy O’Reilly is full of s***!” :)
