Tonight ... "The O'Reilly Factor" is on...
Embattled CBS Newsman Dan Rather steps down as anchor of "The CBS Evening News" tomorrow night. Just how brutal is the business of broadcast journalism? Why are Rather's colleagues especially Walter Cronkite (search), stabbing him in the back during his final days in the anchor chair? Is Rather's departure the most concrete example of the massive information shift going on in our country? We'll debate it with former CBS News President Van Gordon Sauter (search) and former CBS News correspondents Liz Trotta and Bill Lynch.
Then, writing in an op-ed piece in today's "Los Angeles Times", former "Time" magazine correspondent William Thatcher Dowell says that "the Christian right is our own brand of extremism." Say what?! Is the Christian right a danger to our country? We'll have analysis.
Plus, actress Jada Pinkett Smith (search) was recently honored as "Artist of the Year" by Harvard's Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations (search). Now she is under fire from some at Harvard for making "heteronormative" remarks in her speech when she accepted her award. Just what are "heteronormative" remarks anyway? And why is the Foundation in trouble over Smith's remarks? We'll ask Margaret Barusch the co-chair of Harvard's Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Supporters Alliance.
Also, controversial Colorado University professor Ward Churchill still has his job but we'll meet another C.U. professor who says that because he is an evangelical Christian he may lose his job. We'll talk with Phil Mitchell when he joins us in the No Spin Zone this evening.
And later, more on the investigation into the shocking deaths of the husband and mother of a Chicaco-area federal judge.
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."
