Synopsis

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.

TV’s two-fisted O’Reilly follows up his disgruntled bestseller, The O’Reilly Factor: The Good, Bad, and Completely Ridiculous in American Life (not reviewed), bashes the bad guys, and twists noses off while supposedly offering a fair shake.

The audience of Fox's top-rated cable news talk show The O'Reilly Factor and of the bestselling book by the same name know that this explosive anchor can be articulate, bombastic, scornful, witty, iconoclastic, passionate, persuasive and sarcastic ("Can you feel Gary Condit's pain?").

Book Reporter

The book THE O'REILLY FACTOR was primarily about O'Reilly, but THE NO SPIN ZONE is mostly about O'Reilly's television program and what has occurred during some of his more notable interviews.

People

O'Reilly, who nightly badgers guests he correctly calls "opponents" on his FOX News Channel talk show The O'Reilly Factor, is one of the thousands of hardworking journalists who have never interviewed Hillary Rodham Clinton but the only one who brags about it.
