Bill O'Reilly on his Jon Stewart interview tonight: 'Hey, he called us'

Bill O’Reilly, trying to hype tonight’s interview with Jon Stewart, went on Fox News Channel’s America Live with Megyn Kelly this afternoon.

O’Reilly said it’s going to be a “big night” for the host of The Daily Show: “Hey, somebody will actually watch him,” he said, referring to the smaller audience Comedy Central attracts compared to The O’Reilly Factor’s ratings.

O’Reilly said he was “surprised” Stewart wanted to come on: “[His people] called us,” he said.

“He’s a witty guy,” said O’Reilly. “I don’t like the way he chops up his news clips,” said O’Reilly, implying Stewart edits unfairly. “I’ll talk to him about that tonight.”

Will you be watching Stewart on The Factor?

Either way, I’ll be posting a complete review of what Megyn Kelly just called “the clash of the titans” later this evening, right here.
