According to Mitt Romney, 47% of Americans are content to loaf through life and rely on the government for their financial needs.

That figure and that stance may be controversial, but this is not: 100% of Americans ought to be excited for October 6 at 8 p.m. EST.

That's when Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly will hold a debate at George Washington University, as the Comedy Central and Fox News hosts may come at each other from different sides of the political spectrum, but have actually appeared on each other's shows and clearly hold a high level of respect for one another.

Are you listening, member of Congress?

It will cost $4.95 to live stream the event and half the proceeds will go to charity. Watch a promo now for what is being dubbed "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium."

Bill O'Reilly believes Glee is a "good show" that typically sends a "positive message." He made both those points clear prior to a recent segment on his Fox News program.

But the conservative host takes major issue with a recent episode, which introduced Alex Newell as a transgender student who dressed as a female during his choir's performance.

O'Reilly said the storyline was an example of the program's "recurring theme that alternative lifestyles may be a big positive."

Angry Bill O'Reilly

“If you make the behavior of these people... if children hear it, unsupervised children, okay who don't have parents watching their - they might go out and experiment with this stuff," O'Reilly wailed, while guest Gretchen Carlson agreed.

"Here we go again, pandering to .3% of the American population that considers themselves transgender," Carlson said. "Now I get to explain this to my 8-year-old, if i want her to see a nice family show with some nice music."

Judge Jeanine Pirro tried to chime in as a voice of reason and asked the host: "Do you really think that this is the kind of thing that's contagious?" to which he admitted not being sure, but added that seeing James Dean smoke as a teenager did encourage him to do the same.

On The Today Show this morning, Matt Lauer and Bill O'Reilly engaged in a fascinating debate.

It stemmed from the latter's belief that Whitney Houston had a death wish, that nobody abuses drugs or alcohol in such a way "if they want to stay on the planet."

Lauer countered this point by saying "addiction is a disease," but O'Reilly shot back:

"It's a mental disease. You have free will when it comes to addiction. You don't have free will when it comes to lung cancer."

The main topic of the discourse, though, centered on the media's handling of Whitney's long struggle with substance abuse, with O'Reilly labeling all reports over the years as "sensationalized to exploit the woman's condition, not try to help her.

"You know what we in the media do, Lauer?" he asked. "We wink-wink it. We Snoop Dogg it. We Willie Nelson it. 'Hey, oh yeah, they're stoned, that's fine.'"

Is O'Reilly in favor of lowering flags in New Jersey Saturday in honor of Houston's funeral? Yes, he believes we should respect the singer's life. But he also believes journalists should have done the same for her before she died by taking a harsher stance on her drug problem.

Listen to the audio above and take a side.

Bill O'Reilly and Nancy Grace may both be talking heads who crave attention and believe they are right about everything, but these talk show hosts have a contrasting opinion on Whitney Houston.

Grace wonders if the singer was murdered. O'Reilly, meanwhile, thinks Houston walked around with a death wish.

“Nobody takes drugs for that long if they want to stay on the planet,” O'Relly said on his Fox News broadcast this week, adding that "everybody knew" Houston was a drug addict and comparing her to Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and others who died young.

As for Tony Bennett's push to now legalize drugs? O'Reilly touches on that in this segment, as well:

Ellen DeGeneres and Bill O'Reilly on the same side of an issue? Yes, folks, anything is possible.

This pair of seemingly opposite celebrities came together this week in light of an organization known as One Million Moms pushing to get Ellen fired as the JC Penney spokesperson, with the Fox News anchor referring to the protest as un-American and, simply, wrong.

Ellen also commented on the flap during a monologue this week, and then took a few moments later to express gratitude to O'Reilly. Watch her do so below:

It's a witch hunt.

That's what Bill O'Reilly has to say about the movement by One Million Moms - a conservative organization, from which no member agreed to appear on Fox News last night - to pressure JC Penney into firing its new spokesperson, Ellen DeGeneres.

The group takes issue with Ellen being an openly gay celebrity, as O'Reilly Factor guest Sandy Rios defended its actions by saying "people that believe marriage is between a man and woman and children should not be exposed to propagandized homosexuality."

O'Reilly response? That's fine. Don't shop at JC Penney then. But to actively push for a private company to fire an American citizen based on her lifestyle? That's just wrong. It's McCarthyism. Watch the segment below and then express your opinion:

Should JC Penney fire Ellen DeGeneres?

Great. Thanks a lot, Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian. You've forced us to side with Bill O'Reilly.

On his Fox News program last night, the host sat down with Barbara Walters and grilled her over her ridiculous Most Fascinating People of 2011 list, which includes Simon Cowell, Derek Jeter, Pippa Middleton... and the Kardashians.

Why are we "lionizing" that family, O'Reilly asked, arguing they represent "all that's wrong with America" because they have "no talent," they make millions and "all they do is sit around and whine." Anyone care to disagree? Watch the exchange now:

Bill O'Reilly appears willing to believe Anthony Weiner.

While acknowledging that the attention paid to this Congressman's Twitter scandal - in which he alleges someone hacked into his account and sent this picture to a 21-year old follower - is "dumb," O'Reilly also brought up an interesting point last night:

If a hacker really did infiltrate a Congressman's account, we're looking at a major security risk.

The Fox News host said. "Weiner's case is dumb. But if he was hacked, that's serious. So the FBI should be involved and should tell the folks they're on the case."

Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly clashed over the non-issue that simply won't go away - Common's recent invite to the White House - Monday on Fox News.

Having already crushed Fox News over its treatment of the subject last week, the Comedy Central host more than held his own on Bill's home court.

When O'Reilly accused Common of defending cop killers, Stewart broadened the argument to discuss Fox's "selective outrage" against the rapper.

If the network's outrage is over an artist who writes sympathetically about convicted criminals visiting the White House, why didn't Fox attack Bono? Bob Dylan?

Noting that Bono wrote a song about Leonard Peltier, convicted of killing FBI agents, Stewart hilariously delivered a "Boo-yah!" that left Bill dazed.

Stewart's humor, however brilliantly timed, was only present briefly in what became a heated and thought-provoking exchange on the subject.

Watch the second half of their exchange below ...

It's come to this: Bill O'Reilly is the voice of reason.

On that host's Fox News talk show last night, the journalist called out Donald Trump for pushing the absurd notion that Barack Obama was born outside the United States.

Referring to multiple announcements in Honolulu papers that documented Obama's birth, O'Reilly quipped to his guest: "What is he, the Baby Jesus? There was a sophisticated conspiracy to smuggle this baby back into the country?"

O'Reilly went on to doubt that Trump could possibly believe such nonsense, challenging the supposed Presidential candidate for just trying to be "provocative" and remain in the news. Watch the exchange here:
