O'REILLY: In "Back of the Book" segment tonight, the "Kelly File." We begin with a story we covered last night. A Wisconsin teacher, with the help of the teachers' union, being reinstated to his job, given 200,000 in back pay.


Forty-seven-year-old, Andrew Harris, fired from the Glacier Creek Middle School for looking at porn material on campus, campus. He also shared the material on school computers.


Very nice. And here, with her view of this, the Anchor of "The Kelly File," seen right after THE FACTOR, Ms. Megyn.

I think this is so appalling, you know. We had a lively debate last night with Powers who reads from the mail and all that, she goes, "Oh, it's an overreaction to fire the guy."


O'REILLY: Yes, yes. And I got mail supporting that position. So, we're living in a very strange time now --

KELLY: Right.

O'REILLY: -- where a teacher -- not at home, you know. We're not talking about a home --


O'REILLY: -- or at the YMCA.

KELLY: During school hours, he's sitting there, dozen -- dozens of times --


KELLY: -- that he admitted, too. They came from his sister. His sister is e-mailing triple X porn --


-- and he's writing back, "thanks" to his sister over the years, while he's teaching seventh grade Science during school hours. And this is not - -


-- not that it's relevant, but it's not like soft core stuff. I mean, it's triple X. Disgusting.

O'REILLY: And he's sending it out to other people.

KELLY: And --

O'REILLY: So, he's like the nexus.

KELLY: You tell me. He's sitting there with your seventh grader, and you're OK if he's looking at this stuff and then interacting with your child? Something is wrong with that.

O'REILLY: All right. So, you agree with me on this, OK.

KELLY: Yes. I think he's a disgusting pervert and he shouldn't be anywhere near children.

O'REILLY: All right, leave him aside.

KELLY: And it's not because he looks at porn. A lot of people look at porn. You don't do it around 11-year-olds --


KELLY: -- where you're supposed to be teaching them Science.

O'REILLY: But here's the deal. So, this guy takes it to the union -- the teachers' union.


And the union racks up almost a million dollars in legal fees, trying to get him back, wins, --

KELLY: They win.


O'REILLY: -- wins because, Wisconsin, I don't know what's going on out there. And he gets $200,000 in back pay.


O'REILLY: And then they're celebrating like they did something good.

KELLY: But it's not even about the money. The school district will have to pay the money, and that's unfortunate. He's going to go teach another seventh grade Science class.

O'REILLY: And can you imagine the kids in the class?

KELLY: This is gross.

O'REILLY: They don't have any authority.

KELLY: There is nothing wrong with human sexuality. If you want to watch porn, go ahead and watch porn. But if you feel a compunction to do it while you're teaching my 11-year-old, and we've got a problem.

O'REILLY: Yes, exactly. But I have to correct you. You don't tell the audience to go watch porn especially at eight and nine o'clock.


You know, you don't do that.

KELLY: What people do in their own homes, none of my business. If they're not hurting anybody, --

O'REILLY: Not at eight and nine Eastern Time, Kelly.


You see, we have to make a living here.

KELLY: I see what you're saying. I see what you're saying.


O'REILLY: We don't want to give them other options.

KELLY: Well, you know how they have that -- like box that you can watch two things at once.


O'REILLY: No, they've got to pay attention, 4:30 in the morning maybe.


Not at primetime. All right, Justin Bieber -- I feel sorry for this kid. Everybody is saying he's a pinhead. He probably is.


But this is a kid with no guidance. He's got too much money, he's got ridiculous hair. And, now, he's --

KELLY: He looks like Miley Cyrus. He's starting to look like Miley Cyrus.

O'REILLY: He's in jail. He's in jail. What did he do.

KELLY: He's been arrested for DUI, for resisting arrest, and for driving without a license. According to the police chief, he was drag racing and he was in --

O'REILLY: Where.

O'REILLY: -- in Miami. And he was in his Lamborghini, his friend was in a Ferrari -- or reverse that. And they had set up 2 SUVs at the either end of the road, in the middle of the night, in a 30-mile per hour residential zone, and they were going 60 -- at least, that's when they got pulled over.

And, you know, this is like a residential -- people got kids. Now, granted they're probably not up at 4:00 in the morning, but there's a reason we don't allow drag racing.

O'REILLY: Well, Bieber is a kid. But, look, this is how stupid this is. He was just popped, this kid Bieber --

KELLY: Oh, there's been many. There has been many.

O'REILLY: -- right --


-- in Los Angeles, for malicious mischief or something. And then the cops went to his home and they arrested some stupid rapper with all kinds of drugs, who was actually living in the kid's home.

KELLY: Uh-hmm.

O'REILLY: This kid is out of control. He's going to wind up like Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix, and -- you know, these guys. What's going to happen to this kid.

KELLY: Well, because the thing we didn't really mention is the role that drugs played here because they charged him with DUI. Now, granted these are charges right now, they'll not admit it, then he'll fight them.

And he has a very good lawyer, Roy Black, who represented William Kennedy Smith, among others. And then -- but the police chief also says that he admitted that he was smoking marijuana all day, and that there was another drug that was allegedly involved.


So, you know, as is often the case with these young stars, --


KELLY: -- the fame, -- he's worth over a hundred million dollars reportedly.

O'REILLY: A hundred million.

KELLY: He's got over 49 million fans --


-- who follow him on Twitter alone. This is him outside of the courtroom, Bill. Look at this. Does this remind you of somebody.

Who else got on top of the car at their very famous court proceeding.

O'REILLY: Michael Jackson, right.

KELLY: And look how he wound up.


KELLY: In large parts, the dependency on drugs and, of course, the help of a doctor in his case --


-- but this is going --

O'REILLY: Yes but don't be bad mouthing marijuana. Don't you do that, you know. Marijuana, nothing wrong with it, Kelly. Just like having a little cocktail.


O'REILLY: No, it's so benign.

KELLY: The thing is, any drug, especially -- including alcohol, which is legal, not for a 19-year-old but for the rest of us, can be abused. And it can compromise your judgment. And you get behind the wheel of a car, --


KELLY: -- and you go twice the speed limit in a residential area, and you need to tell that --

O'REILLY: So, Bieber is out jail now.

KELLY: Yes, he's out on $2,500-bond.

O'REILLY: Uh-hmm.

KELLY: He'll deny the charges. They'll probably settle for some community service, I would predict. But this is a problem. This is not going to end well for him.

O'REILLY: All right. What have you got tonight.

KELLY: We've got something big. You know Greg Abbott, he's running for governor down in Texas, --


KELLY: You will not believe the video that has just come out of what is, reportedly, supporters of Wendy Davis making fun of him for being a paraplegic, among other things. We have the tape and we have Greg Abbott.

O'REILLY: And he is the former attorney general down there, right.

KELLY: He's the attorney general running for --

O'REILLY: Well, he's a good guy. You know him?

KELLY: Yes, very good.

O'REILLY: I know him. He's a good guy.

KELLY: Very good.

O'REILLY: So, Wendy Davis is running against him. Her supporters are mocking his condition.

KELLY: Democrats supporting Wendy Davis. And it's on tape. We'll show it to you.

O'REILLY: We will watch "The Kelly File."

KELLY: Thanks, Bill.
