For the second night in a row, Jon Stewart appeared on The O'Reilly Factor.

While there were still no verbal blowups between The Daily Show anchor and Bill O'Reilly, exchanges turned a little more fiery than they did during round one of the interview.

Among the topics broached below:

  • The threat of nuclear weapons;
  • Sarah Palin's warped idea of "real America."
  • The trial of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in New York City.

Stewart's quick take on these issues: Fox News ratchets up fear on the first; where one lives is irrelevent to one's status as an American; and there are valid concerns regarding the third, but one of them is NOT that we'll suddently be a terrorist target. How come?

We already are.

Watch and then vote below:

While it came across more like a conversation between two reluctant friends than an epic battle between good and evil, Jon Stewart appeared on The O'Reilly Factor last night.

The Fox News host tried to engaged The Daily Show anchor by referring to his audience as “stoned slackers who love Obama,” but Stewart didn't take the bait. He merely responded with a chuckle and carefully laid out President Obama's first-year strengths and weaknesses.

It was a nuanced, fair explanation, the kind Fox News viewers must have been utterly confounded by. Watch an exchange between the hosts below:

It's clear Stewart appeared on the wrong show, as he admitted O'Reilly was the "sanest" voice at the network, although he added: “That’s like being the thinnest kid at fat camp.”

Put the Comedy Central star against Glenn Beck, however, and we'd imagine the sparks would fly. Stewart made multiple references to Beck's - how shall we put it? - unique style of BSing viewers with whatever sob story would garner the most ratings.

The biggest laugh of the interview? When O'Reilly claimed Beck did not have a right-wing agenda.

Because these two almost got along too well - Stewart saved his most damning critique for Fox News, saying it sells "the clearest narrative" and works fans into a tizzy via a passion-based, "cyclonic" barrage of information that spins reasonable arguments into outrageous claims - we need to ratchet up the intensity between each's supporters.

Whose team are you on?

Whether he's debating whether Miley is a skank or comparing Michael Jackson to O.J., Bill O'Reilly is never one to shy away from hot-button, pop-cultural topics.

This time, the Fox news host is irate at Law & Order: SVU and its producer Dick Wolf after what he felt was a defamatory reference about him on the NBC drama.

This week's episode involved an anti-immigration activist who set out to kill children of illegal immigrants. A character named Randall Carver, played by John Larroquette, defended the activist's actions to Fin, the detective played by Ice-T.

Larroquette's character says, "Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly ... are like a cancer spreading ignorance and hate. They've convinced folks immigrants are the problem, not corporations that fail to pay a living wage or a broken health care system."

Bill slammed the "defamatory and outrageous" scene and said Wolf as a "coward" and "liar." He insisted (via a montage of clips) that is problem isn't with illegal immigrants themselves, but with the government doing little to control immigration.

He also took an irrelevant, but funny shot at NBC's ratings.

Last night on the "Talking Points" segment of his Fox News program, The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly was simply “fed up with all the adulation” over Michael Jackson.

Among Bill's observations on the day of MJ's memorial service:

  • Jackson’s "incredible selfishness, spending hundreds of millions of dollars on himself while singing ‘We Are The World’" should make anyone nauseous.
  • Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and other African-Americans are shamelessly “playing the race card” by claiming Jackson as one of their own in death.
  • “If (Jackson) were a white guy,” his behavior would never be tolerated.
  • “You don’t become an African-American icon” if you bleach your skin.

As bad as that was, his guest, "media critic" Bernard Goldberg, was worse.

Goldberg first defended U.S. Rep. Peter King, who has come under fire for calling Jackson a “low-life,” a “pedophile” and a "child molester" over the weekend.

The New York Republican is enraged at people extolling the virtues of Jackson, putting at least part of the blame on media coverage that is "too politically correct."

The icing on the cake came when Goldberg said, “Then again, to many black people, if you remember the reaction after he was acquitted, O.J. Simpson was a hero.”

Here's O'Reilly's "Talking Points" and an interview with Columbia University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, who tried his best to dispute some of the above comments:

What do you think? Are these guys way out of line, even racist? Or are they the only ones taking the media to task for glorifying Michael Jackson?

Kim Kardashian is cool with Eminem's latest, celebrity-mocking music video.

Bill O'Reilly? Not so much.

On yesterday's edition of The O'Reilly Factor - who has previously taken stars such as Jessica Alba and Sean Penn to task - bashed the rapper for mocking Sarah Palin in the single, "We Made You."

During the song, Eminem raps: I'll invite Sarah Palin out to dinner, nail her... Baby, say hello to my little friend.

Is that really mockery? Sounds like flattery to us.

But not to O'Reilly . He labeled the "attack" on Palin as "crude," adding: "Few Americans take the vile rapper Eminem seriously. He represents the lowest form of entertainment in this country and is a publicity hound to boot.

"Eminem is obviously on an obscene rant about Sarah Palin. It's totally obscene, totally inappropriate... All I want to do is repeat that Eminem means nothing. The video means nothing."

It must mean something, Bill. Why else feature it on your show?

David Letterman and Bill O'Reilly have had some memorable exchanges in the past, and last night's visit by O'Reilly to The Late Show certainly followed suit.

In fact, it took two minutes for Letterman to point-blank call him a goon.

Letterman, who warmed our hearts when he got married to his longtime partner Regina Lasko last month, is certainly not losing touch with his cranky side.

Accusing Bill O'Reilly of being "too smart to say the things he says," cutting him off frequently and telling him he's not that entertaining (or a journalist), Dave showed his lack of tolerance for people he deems self-important and unfunny.

For his part, Bill wasn't exactly backing down. The result was a tense interview that ofen turned more bitter than comedic, but was certainly entertaining:

Remember when Bill O'Reilly ignited a feud with Jessica Alba? That was funny.

Now, the Fox News host has singled out another actor, one that possesses a few more acting chops than Alba.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter this week, O'Reilly said he won't watch Sean Penn movies, due to the actor's political views.

"He's a great actor, and if you hire him, you'll get a good performance," O'Reilly said. "I'm just not going to give a guy who gives aid and comfort to people like [Iran president Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and Saddam Hussein, when he was alive, my 10 bucks. That's my right as an American."

Are you sure, Bill? Milk was really, really good.

So much for the end of partisan bickering under the Barack Obama era.

When asked by a producer of The O'Reilly Factor if she had a Presidential Inauguration shout-out for host Bill O'Reilly, Jessica Alba replied:

"No, he's kind of an... kind of an a--hole. A little bit."

In the clip above, O'Reilly fires back. After the actress added that she doesn't actually watch O'Reilly's program, the conservative blow hard said:

"[We] believe Miss Alba is misguided and would benefit greatly if she actually did watch The Factor."

For all the criticism the media and blog world (this celebrity gossip site included) has endured for supposedly biased coverage of Gov. Sarah Palin and pregnant daughter Bristol, some of her biggest fans may be a tad hypocritical, as well.

Case in point: Bill O'Reilly.

Here's what the Fox News personality had to say about Bristol Palin ...

"Millions of families are dealing with teen pregnancy, and as long as society doesn't have to support the mother, father or baby, it is a personal matter. Some Americans will judge Governor Palin and her family, and she will have a hard time running for vice president if there is much more chaos. For the sake of her and her family, we hope things calm down. This country needs a vibrant policy debate, not a soap opera."

This would be a fair assessment if it weren't only because he likes Palin's politics. Here's what he said last year about pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears:

"On the pinhead front, 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant. The sister of Britney says she is shocked. I bet. Now most teens are pinheads in some ways. But here the blame falls primarily on the parents of the girl, who obviously have little control over her or even over Britney Spears. Look at the way she behaves. And by the way, the mother, Lynne Spears, has reportedly already sold pictures of the upcoming baby of her 16-year-old for a million bucks. Incredible pinhead."

No one is calling Sarah Palin Lynne Spears. But does this mean Bristol is a pinhead? And by this logic, shouldn't he simply leave Jamie Lynn alone?

Makes you think.

Bill O'Reilly.

Whether he's trying to insert himself into the Miley Cyrus topless pic debate, calling out Snoop Dogg or letting Hillary Clinton chop his nuts off interviewing Hillary Clinton on national TV, this "no spin" journalist sparks controversy.

Angry Bill O'Reilly

In case you haven't noticed, Bill O'Reilly can get pretty fired up.

Still, this behind-the-scenes clip from Bill's days as host of Inside Edition is shocking even for him. Apparently someone was screwing up on the teleprompter. Bill goes through several takes, then absolutely flips the f*%k out.

WARNING: Hilarious, scary clip of temperamental ass clown contains profanity.
