Guests and Topics: May 25

Watch "Hannity & Colmes" weeknights at 9 p.m. ET!

Here's just some of what we've got planned for you tonight:

Arizona Senator John McCain is famous for the five years he endured as a prisoner in the Hanoi Hilton, the most notorious POW camp in Vietnam. His bestselling book, “Faith of My Fathers,” tracks the life and times of this modern-day American hero, and is also a heartfelt homage to his father and grandfather, both of whom served as admirals in the U.S. Navy. As A&E gets set to air the television adaptation of his book, John McCain sits down with Sean for a preview of the biographical film.

And, why some Republicans say poor judgment was made in stopping the Senate showdown. Former Judge Robert Bork (search) speaks out tonight on “Hannity and Colmes.”

Plus, we’re joined live by former Black Panther Party (search) member Quanell X with his reaction to Newsweek’s retracted Koran desecration story.

Also, we’ll air exclusive new video from the border patrol that catches illegal immigrants drowning in the Rio Grande River while attempting to cross into the U.S. Does the Mexican government have blood on their hands? President Vicente Fox’s former advisor, Juan Hernandez, and radio talk show host Michael Reagan join us for a fair and balanced debate.

Plus, the defense rests in the Michael Jackson (search) trial without calling the Gloved One to the stand. How will this affect his case and what can we expect during next week’s closing arguments? We’re live at the courtroom with the details.

This story and much more ... Don't miss your opportunity to join the debate tonight at 9 p.m. ET!

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

About the Show

Fast-paced and hard-hitting, "Hannity & Colmes" brings viewers a heated discussion in a nightly face-off. Relishing in controversial topics, personalities and social issues, conservative radio commentator Sean Hannity and liberal radio personality Alan Colmes offer their points-of-view in an often animated, always compelling debate.

But, unlike similar debate shows — which often appear scripted — "Hannity & Colmes" conducts a live, spur of the moment deliberation on politics and social topics. Also, differentiating the show is its dedication to "move away from the Beltway," bringing audiences an alternative discussion program without the "in" comments.

Adding fuel to the fire, several high-profile guests have joined the program on a wide-range of topics.

"With guests who are 'in the middle of the fight,' we're able to hear their point-of-view on the topics, as well as advance our own feelings," said Hannity.

"Believe it or not, I agree with that statement," quipped Colmes.
