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

Was the new pope behind the controversy over John Kerry (search) being denied Catholic sacraments because he is pro-choice? We’ll investigate the holy uproar.

Then, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (search) demands a federal crackdown on border security. What caused him to see the light? A former consultant to the governor joins us with the latest on the flip-flop frenzy.

Plus, as the prosecution begins wrapping up its case against Michael Jackson (search) things are about to get more bizarre as the defense plans to call a bunch of high-profile celebrities to the stand. Is your favorite celeb is on the witness list? We'll take you to the Santa Maria courtroom for the latest.

And when a Texas woman calls 911 to plead for help with her unruly child, the dispatcher sarcastly offers to shoot the caller’s daughter. What can you do when your child is completely out-of-control? Can you depend on the police for help? We’ll ask an expert.

Then, a Texas state representative is fed up with sexually suggestive cheerleading (search) routines at high schools so he's filed a bill to put a stop to these provocative performances. Is Rep. Al Edwards (search) within his bounds as a lawmaker or has he gone too far in his cheerleading crackdown? We’ll have a fair and balanced debate.

And a ninth-grade student accuses officials at a Southern California high school of discrimination for suspending him for wearing lipstick and eye makeup. James Herndon says his appearance expresses his Wiccan religious beliefs. Does his suspension violate his constitutional right to free expression? The embattled teen and his mother make their case on tonight’s “Factor.”

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"!

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."

See you in the No Spin Zone, tonight at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET!
