The (Air-Conditioned, Reasonably Civil) Rumble

Abby Zimet

In the spirit of returning political discourse to something other than a blood sport - and allowing everyone involved to yell alot - Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly have announced a 90-minute debate on Oct. 6, to be live-streamed from George Washington University. Half the proceeds from “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium” will go to charity.

"We are going to have an argument. It is going to be, like, the worst Thanksgiving anyone ever went to." - Stewart

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
