Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0767908481, Hardcover)On the heels of his runaway New York Times bestseller, 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 book The 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 Zone cuts 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 Zone is 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’Reilly delivers 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.

Bill O'Reilly, the always-controversial television pundit, has written another book that shows his characteristic anger and vituperation against those whom he perceives as America's famous and powerful. He lets no one he dislikes off the hook, whether it be the Clintons and their legacy of scandal, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, or Dan Rather. He claims to speak for millions of angry white males, disenfranchised by the changing economy, the depredations of figures in power, and the lack of simple answers to their problems. He buttresses his opinions of these figures with their own words about the issues he cares about - issues including Medicare, the death penalty, and crime. This book is a direct challenge to the elite, striking a blow for "real Americans."
