NEW YORK, NY – A debate between two of the biggest smart-aleck’s in politics? Yes, please! A little levity in the world of politics is exactly what we need about now. Who doesn’t want a break from the same ole’ rhetoric? So, we were excited to watch “The Rumble,” between Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly go down on Saturday night. In case you missed it, here’s a re-cap of the Pay-Per-View event.
Apparently the TV-titans were so busy prepping for the debate that someone forgot to either work through all the technical glitches, or accurately anticipate how many folks would tune in. The server crashed during the much anticipated knock-down drag-out. So people trying to live stream the back-and-forth between Stewart and O’Reilly spent more time watching a loading screen than any debating, and the ones who could watch saw more pixilation than politicking.
Now O’Reilly and Stewart are offering people their money back.
Too bad we don’t have that option in the ‘real’ presidential debates!
Doesn’t it seem like whether it’s a serious debate, or seriously entertaining, everything’s lost in translation anyway?
