As Salon's Gabriel Winant wrote in a fantastic article available elsewhere on the site, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly frequently attacked abortion provider George Tiller in recent years. O'Reilly accused Tiller of "Nazi stuff," compared him to NAMBLA and al-Qaida, said he had "blood on his hands."

Understandably, then, O'Reilly's taken some heat since Tiller was shot to death at his church on Sunday. Tonight, according to Greg Sargent, the Fox News personality will talk about the doctor one more time -- a spokesman for the network told Sargent, "Mr. O’Reilly will be addressing the issue/topic on tonight’s show."

That will, almost certainly, make for some very interesting television.
