Tonight ... "The O'Reilly Factor" is on!

Military officials sought today to determine who was behind a strike on a U.S. base in Mosul (search) that killed 22 people in one of the deadliest attacks on troops since the start of the war.

The deadly attack on the Forward Operating Base Marez (search) in Mosul, some 225 miles north of Baghdad, wounded 72 people. Forty two of the wounded arrived today at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany for treatment.

How can we keep our troops safe in Iraq? What will be the political fallout from the Mosul attack? We'll have analysis.

Then, there will be a hearing in U.S. District Court today in Arizona where a judge will listen to arguments both for and against Proposition 200 (search). -- That's the measure that easily passed with voters in the Grand Canyon state November and according to the "Arizona Republic" requires "state and local government workers to check the immigration status of everyone applying for non-federally mandated public benefits." We'll have the latest.

These stories and much more including a brand-new edition of our world-famous "Talking Points Memo" and "The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day!"

About the Show

"Other interview news shows are guest-driven," says Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist Bill O'Reilly. "'The O'Reilly Factor' is driven by me. I will not stand for 'spin.' I look for guests who will stand up and verbally battle for what they believe in."

"The O'Reilly Factor" uncovers news items from the established wisdom and goes against the grain of the more traditional interview-style programs. O'Reilly's signature "No Spin Zone" cuts through the rhetoric as he interviews the players who make the story newsworthy.

Pushing beyond just the headlines, "The O'Reilly Factor" also features issues from local markets that do not find the national spotlight on other newscasts. According to O'Reilly, "Just because a story originates from somewhere the networks typically avoid, doesn't mean it contains less challenging issues, or compelling ideas."
