The O'Reilly Factor: The Good, the Bad and the Completely Rediculous in American Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hard-hitting and no-holds-barred broadside from the anchorman of the Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor--what's good about America (plenty), what's bad(plenty still), and what's completely ridiculous (most everything else).

Every night on the Fox News Channel, Bill O'Reilly tells it like it is. The O'Reilly Factor is the fastest-growing cable news program--and that's because O'Reilly leaves no stone unturned in his quest to reveal the truth about the state of America. It doesn't matter if you're a Hollywood movie star, or a Washington insider, or Joe Blow from Massapequa--when you come up against O'Reilly, you better get your story straight.

Here, for the first time on paper, is O'Reilly's take on our country, our politicians, our celebrities, our class system, our love lives, our money. In fact, O'Reilly's got an opinion on just about everything, and he's holding nothing back:

O'Reilly on class: "A mind is a terrible thing to waste if you're held back by race, or gender. It is just as great a waste when you're held back by class. Right, Reverend Jackson?"

O'Reilly on Martha Stewart: "While she masquerades as a paragon of good taste, she has turned herself into a snooty, condescending mogul

. . . She's a first-rate con artist."

O'Reilly on money: "The true heroes of America are not the new Internet billionaires or the overpaid sports stars. The true heroes are the men, women, and teenagers who go to work for a modest wage, fulfill their responsibilities, and are kind and generous to others."

O'Reilly on Al Sharpton and David Duke: "These two are the most ridiculous racial demagogues in the entire U.S.A. If God has a sense of humor, they will be sharing a sauna in the netherworld. With one thermostat."

O'Reilly on sex: "It's time that we all lighten up about sex and keep our sexual activities where they belong: in the privacy of the bedroom or the hot tub, or in the case of Pamela Anderson, on the Internet."

Mixing fascinating stories from his life both on- and off-screen with his explosive views on what's up with America, and how we can fix it, The O'Reilly Factor will ruffle your feathers, make you laugh, and make you think.

Review:

"I may be damaging Bill O'Reilly's reputation by praising him in public. Nonetheless, even though he is wrong about most things, politically speaking, he is invariably fair and encourages debates. His program is always worth watching." Lanny Davis, Former Special Counsel to the President (1996-1998)

Review:

"I just returned from a trip to Vietnam, and one of the reasons I went was to prepare myself for being back on The O'Reilly Factor because Bill O'Reilly uses some of their old interrogation techniques." Senator John McCain

Review:

"The O'Reilly Factor is a consistently informative, entertaining program that deals with important, contemporary issues. I appreciate Bill O'Reilly's 'no shtick' and 'take no prisoners' approach. The passion, sincerity, and voracity with which he handles his work are refreshing." Dr. Laura C. Schlessinger

Review:

"It's hard to pin a label on Bill O'Reilly. Is he a liberal conservative or a conservative liberal? But whatever his political leanings, his show is a hard-hitting, fast-moving discussion of events at the top of the news. No one walks away from it, guest or viewer, without admiration for The O'Reilly Factor." Geraldine A. Ferraro

Review:

"Bill O'Reilly overpowers...with his direct, take-no-prisoners point of view. How a Gentile could be the greatest talk show host in history is something I will never be able to figure out." Jackie Mason

Synopsis:

As the nation prepares for another presidential race, O'Reilly's provocative opinions are sure to add fire to the ongoing debates. The O'Reilly Factor is poised to follow in footsteps such as Rush Limbaugh's The Way Things Ought to Be and Jesse Ventura's I Ain't Got Time to Bleed.
