The No Spin Zone
Confrontations With the Powerful and Famous in AmericaUnknown - 2001
On the heels of his runawayNew York Timesbestseller,The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly delivers another strong dose of no-holds-barred advice and the unvarnished truth for America. Bill O'Reilly is even madder today than when he wrote his last bookThe O'Reilly Factor--and his fans love him even more. He's mad because things have gone from bad to worse, in politics, in Hollywood, in every social stratum of the nation. True to its title,The No-Spin Zonecuts through all the rhetoric that some of O'Reilly's most infamous guests have spewed to expose what's really on their minds, while sharing plenty of his own emphatic counterpoints along the way. Shining a searing spotlight on public figures from President George W. Bush and Senator Hillary Clinton to the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and his former CBS News colleague Dan Rather,The No-Spin Zoneis laced with the kind of straight-shooting commentary that has made O'Reilly the voice of middle America's disenfranchised. Examining sex and violence in the media and the tarnished legacy of the Clintons with the same feistiness as the death penalty (which he opposes) and timid national news organizations that roll over for the powerful, Bill O'Reillydelivers not only his opinions, but the documented attitudes of the country's movers and shakers as well. It demonstrates just why O'Reilly has become the most successful, the most controversial, the most beloved (by some), and the most disliked (by others) figure in television news today_and a culture hero to tens of millions of everyday Americans. And that's fact, not spin.
