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

The staggering death toll continues to mount in south Asia as nine countries struggle to cope with the aftermath of a massive earthquake and the catastropic tsunamis it spawned. The new official estimate stands at nearly 70,000.

Now residents of the region face a new threat from contaminated water, toxic conditions and potentially deadly disease. What's being done to deal with what could be one of the largest natural disasters in world history.

President Bush spoke today about the disaster, expressed his condolences and offered his support. He mentioned the generosity of the American public and urged them to donate money to non-governmental agencies.

We'll have the latest on American efforts to help a region in crisis.

Plus, we'll continue to bring you more of the shocking stories of survival.

Also, two blasts rock the Saudi capital of Riyadh today. Is Usama bin Laden behind the attacks? We'll have analysis.

And later, more attacks by insurgents in Iraq. We'll have a report.

These stories and much more tonight on "The O'Reilly Factor!"

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."
