BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Now, here's some inside baseball. This morning, in our conference call for The Factor, we had a lively argument because the authorities in Los Angeles County wouldn't release anything about the alleged murderer, not even his name, very unusual.

What does that tell me? Told me that he might be an illegal alien, OK? So, we tried all day and all day and all day.

We put pressure on them, they finally late today released his picture and his name. Turns out he's not an illegal alien, Eboni, alright? But he is a gang member who was let out of the California prison because of overcrowding, or some crazy thing.
