Yeah, BUT ...

... remember, these guys are not running for office. They have no skin in this particular game.

Do you REALLY think they are going to say things that would offend the viewers of THEIR OWN SHOWS ... WHERE THEY ACTUALLY MAKE MONEY?

O'Reilly is NOT going to say anything that the sheeple-right believe is not true ... and Stewart is NOT going to say anything that the sheeple-left believe is not true.

With that perspective in mind, was there anything really unexpected here? I mean, even their lack of understanding of issues or their lack of philosophical grounding is not unsurprising -- they both demonstrate these things every weeknight on the air.

Just a dog and pony show, aimed at their audiences. Nothing more.
