Friday, July 1
After nearly 24 years on the Supreme Court, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (search) has told President Bush she is leaving the bench. Are the political fireworks just getting started as the fight over the next justice begins? We'll have complete coverage of Justice O'Connor's resignation.
Our guests tonight include:

• Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) weighs in on how things could go once the Senate Judiciary Committee (search) gets down to work.
• Linda Meyer, who was a clerk for Justice O'Connor in the nineties, tells us what the future may hold for women's issues and the court now that America's first female Supreme Court justice has stepped down.
• Tim O'Brien, FNC's Supreme Court analyst and FNC's Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano share their thoughts who should succeed Justice O'Connor on the court.
Plus, Geraldo Rivera takes us inside the Natalee Holloway case and Bill talks with the fast-food CEO who gave the green light to Paris Hilton's racy ad for the Carl's Jr. (search) hamburger chain.
Monday, July 4
Was Mark Felt, the FBI agent who helped bring down Richard Nixon's presidency a hero or a villain? We’ll talk "deep throat" vs. deep scapegoat with senior Nixon aide Chuck Colson.
Then, the fireworks erupt when a judge orders Planned Parenthood (search) to release patient’s abortion records. Don’t miss this explosive segment!
Also, you won’t be able to take your eyes off the San Francisco 49’ers (search) racy in-house "training video." What were they thinking in the City by the Bay?! Sports radio talk show host Brian Murphy weighs in.
And, should gay marriage really be considered as legitimate as marriage between a man and a woman? The American Psychiatric Association (search) says "yes." We'll hear why.

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!
