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

These faculty members support and defend Professor Ward Churchill (search) and they're fighting for his rights! Now another new controversy surrounds the already super-controversial University of Colorado professor. Why does one university in Washington state want Churchill to speak on their campus even if it puts their students in danger?! We'll have a special report for you this evening.

Then, in the past two week France has blocked efforts to designate Hezbollah (search) as a terrorist group. The U.S. has long called the organization, which was founded in Iran, a terrorist group so why is France protecting them? We'll have analysis.

Also, attorney Lynne Stewart (search) was recently convicted providing material to aid terrorism. So why is FOX News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano saying that her conviction is "another perverse victory in the Justice Department's assault on the Constitution"? He'll be here to explain...

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

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.

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."
