Bill O'Reilly And Jon Stewart Have EPIC Fued Over 'White Privile
Bill O'Reilly may have come to Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" to promote his book "Killing Patton" but their polite conversation took a turn for the worse and escalated into a verbal shouting match.

Stewart revealed he hadn't read the book the political commentator was there to promote.

Instead, Stewart asked the conservative if there was such a thing as "white privilege" as O'Reilly had already expressed the idea as untrue.

Said O'Reilly to the question posed by Stewart, "Okay, look, if there's white privilege, then there has to be Asian privilege because Asians make more money than whites....

Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly
On October 6 at 8 PM, political pundits Bill O'Reilly of Fox News and Jon Stewart of Comedy Central will be going at it on an online debate on the upcoming election. The live stream will be available for $5, with proceeds going to charity.

While having a modicum of professional respect for one another, the two often play up the differences between their fan bases - mostly that they are on different sides of the political spectrum.

The two already traded barbs on O'Reilly's program. Said Bill, "We're going to be like we are in real life: Me very successful and you just barely hanging on...

'Supernatural' Recap: Have Faith That It Will Get Worse

9/24/2011 12:30pm EDT
padalecki and ackles
When “Supernatural” first started seven years ago, it was just a show about two brothers with a cool car, saving people and hunting things while they searched for their father. I had no idea that it would nearly double its ratings in the fourth season—thanks to passionate fans and the internet—or that it would snarkily and bravely tackle such enormous themes as religion, God and the true meaning of faith. But season six ended with everyone's favorite angel, Castiel, declaring himself the new God after bingeing on Purgatory’s doomed souls with as much gusto as Dean (Jensen Ackles) attacks ...

The hitmaker, who hails from the President's adopted hometown of Chicago, Illinois, openly revealed his dissatisfaction with Obama's foreign policy stance, stating, "To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America... The root cause of terrorists is t...

The Simpsons
A producer behind The Simpsons has dismissed rumors of a rift between show bosses and executives at 20th Century Fox after a recent episode criticized the company's politics.

An episode of the long-running series titled The Fool Monty aired last week and the show opened with a scene featuring a Fox News helicopter with a slogan emblazoned on the side reading: "Fox News: Not Racist, But No1 With Racists."

A followed up installment, which aired on Sunday, again poked fun at the distributor, featuring the helicopter with a new slogan, "Fox News: Unsuitable for Viewers Under 75."

The View
Whoopi Goldberg stormed off the set of The View on Thursday after becoming infuriated during a heated debate over the planned 'Ground Zero Mosque' in New York.

A discussion with conservative broadcaster Bill O'Reilly spilled over when the controversial Fox News anchor argued against the Islamic center in downtown Manhattan.

The political pundit insisted it was highly insensitive to build the place of worship so close to where the city's Twin Towers crumbled in 2001, after Muslim extremists flew two planes into the high rise buildings, exclaiming, "Muslims killed us on 9/11."

I thought that the shoot was all in fun. We had a good time. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion about it."

Kim has recently drawn the ire of Bill O'Reilly for her photo shoot with Justin, who claimed that Justin would be in a lot of trouble if the ages were switched. "I'll tell you this: If a 16-year-old girl was pictured with a 29-year-old man in any of that, he'd be in big trouble. Game over," Bi...

Jennifer Aniston Flick 'The Switch' Is A Box Office Flop

8/23/2010 8:26am EDT
The Switch
Jennifer Aniston's new sperm donor comedy has flopped at the box office, despite the actress' massive publicity campaign and her spat with newsman Bill O' Reilly.

O'Reilly took issue with comments Aniston made about wannabe mums seeking out donors, making her movie "The Switch" a big talking point - but even that wasn't enough to lure in film fans.

The movie, which co-stars Jason Bateman, opened with a disappointing $8.1 million and didn't even make the top five. It landed in eighth spot behind the debuts of "Twilight" spoof "Vampires Suck," "Lottery Ticket" and "Piranha 3D."

Low Times Mean Good Times With Andy Kindler, Part 1

Andy Kindler
There seems to be a relationship between the state of comedian Andy Kindler's career and the state of American culture. The worse the economy, the less informative the news, and the poorer the satire, the more opportunities Andy gets. This past month alone Andy has been on Letterman, Comedy Central's The Root of all Evil, and was even profiled by the LA Times. "To a man like me," says Andy, "Who brings joy to the non-masses, I'm going to be able to profit during down times." What's down, what's coming, and what's funny about it is the subject of this Starpulse Q and A with comedian Andy Kin...

Borat & Simon Cowell Have The Biggest Balls; Tom Cruise Needs 'Em

Simon Cowell
"You've got balls!" While it may appear to be an insult, it's really a grudging compliment -- an off-color testament to a person's confidence, fearlessness and take-no-prisoners approach to life.

To mark the premiere of its uncensored and very "ballsy" new sketch comedy series, "The Whitest Kids U' Know," the IFC cable network asked Americans a direct and unprecedented question -- to name the politicians, political pundits and entertainment stars they think have the most major cojones...and those who are most in need of more testosterone in their public lives!

So which politicians...
