Tonight...The O'Reilly Factor is on...
The fallout continues over remarks made by Mississippi Republican Senator and incoming Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott at a birthday party last week for 100-year-old outgoing South Carolina Republican, Senator Strom Thurmond. Lott said that the country would have been better off if Thurmond, who ran for the presidency on a segregationist ticket in 1948, had won the office. Lott has since apologized for his remarks but some are calling for his resignation, including the Family Research Council. Is this much ado about nothing or inexcusable behavior? We'll hear from both sides this evening.
Then, members of the Arizona congressional delegation are asking for federal help to cover the enormous costs of providing healthcare to Mexicans who cross over the Arizona border. We'll ask Republican Rep. Jeff Flake why the delegation believes the feds must help out.
And, just how much do telemarketing firms pocket when they call your house asking you to donate to a specific charity? You won't believe how much. New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer will be here to give us a preview of the shocking report he plans to issue next week.
Plus, the Manchester Catholic Archdiocese in New Hampshire settles a priest-sex abuse lawsuit. We'll have a report.
And later, why was hard core rapper Jay Z chosen to be "principal for a day" in the Detroit area?! Is this the proper role model for school kids? One African-American newspaper columnist says no. We'll speak with The Detroit News' Bill Johnson tonight.
Don't miss The O'Reilly Factor this evening at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET! See you in the No Spin Zone!
