Jon stewart bill oriellyJon Stewart took Bill O’Reilly up on his challenge to debate the invitation of Common to a White House poetry reading last week.

On Monday night on The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly said he thinks the invitation “elevates [Common] as a poet” when in O’Reilly’s view Common is “controversial all day long.” O’Reilly and others have cited Common’s shout-out in song to Joanne Chesimard/Assata Shakur, an ex-Black Panther who was convicted of killing a New Jersey officer in a 1973 shoot-out.

Stewart also went on to bash Fox News for picking on Common, but not Bono who has been to The White House before and has had similar lyrics you may be able to question.
