Kalb Interviews Bill O'Reilly Sept. 27

September 2, 2008

Bill O’Reilly, host of “The O’Reilly Factor,” will join moderator Marvin Kalb in the NPC Ballroom at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, to discuss the impact of “opinion journalism” on viewers, listeners, readers and democracy.

“Bill was my student at Harvard, and now he’s my guest. I can’t wait for him to be a ‘factor’ on The Kalb Report,” Kalb said. “He has become a major player in cable news and talk television, transforming the world of journalism. His views must be heard and understood.”

O’Reilly has hosted the Fox News program for 11 years. It has won top ratings among cable news talk shows since 2001.

The Kalb Report is produced by the George Washington University Global Media Institute, Harvard’s Joan Shorenstein Center and the Club. The series is underwritten by a grant from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation. This special Saturday edition will take place during GW’s 2008 alumni weekend.
