TONIGHT: What Does Krauthammer Think of the Redskins Controversy?

Should the Washington Redskins change their name?

The issue has long been debated, and at halftime of "Sunday Night Football," NBC's Bob Costas said the name is a "slur" and called for it to be changed.

The owner of the team, Daniel Snyder, has adamantly refused to change the name.

On Special Report last night, Charles Krauthammer discussed the issue with George Will and Kirsten Powers, believing that it's time for the team to find a new name.

"Growing up, I used to use the word ‘gyp’ ... I never knew until I became an adult that it’s a shortening of ‘gypsy.’ And I didn’t take a poll of gypsies at that point to see how many people were offended. I stopped using it. It’s very easy to do," he said.

Watch the video above, and don't miss The O'Reilly Factor, tonight at 8/11p ET as Krauthammer and O'Reilly take on this contentious issue.
