The No Spin Zone: Confrontations with the Powerful and Famous in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bill OReilly is even madder today than when he wrote his last book, The OReilly Factor, and his fans love him even more. Hes 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 OReillys most infamous guests have spewed to expose whats 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 Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to his former CBS News colleague Dan Rather, The No Spin Zone is laced with the kind of straight-shooting commentary that has made OReilly the voice of middle Americas disenfranchised.

Review:

"This is not to say that O'Reilly never cuts through bull, as he claims. He does. He even makes an excellent point from time to time. But if he really wanted to make his father proud, he'd bite the bullet and subject himself to the bull detector. If he did, the first thing to go would be the pretense that he has any interest in "analysis." After all, this is a man who claims that all of our societal ills are caused by "cowardly parenting" and "corrupt national leadership." Period. No responsible thinker, on the right or the left, would promote such simplistic platitudes.

If you're looking for an intelligent, fair-minded, useful book exploring the issues of the day from a conservative perspective, I'd recommend skipping this one. If you're looking for the No Spin Zone, I'd recommend going back to high school." C. P. Farley, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)
