"I'm really looking forward to speaking to a man who owes his entire career to me," said Fox News host Bill O'Reilly of meeting Stephen Colbert when they trade appearances on their respective shows, "The O'Reilly Factor" and the "Colbert Report."
O'Reilly's top-rated "no spin zone" program has been a source of inspiration for Colbert's nightly parody of cable news, where as the self-absorbed host he tries to bring the world "truthiness." The face-offs will take place on January 18th.
"I look forward to the evening," said Colbert of the upcoming battle of wits versus wit. "It is an honor to speak face-to-face with a broadcasting legend, and I feel the same way about Mr. O'Reilly."
