The No Spin Zone: Confrontations with the Powerful and Famous in America by Bill OReilly“[OReilly] is the real McCoy. Hes the best reporter Ive seen in years…Hes smart, well-read, has good values…and he is fearless in picking targets.”
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 had made OReilly the voice of middle Americas disenfranchised.
“This explosive anchor can be articulate, bombastic, scornful, witty, iconoclastic, passionate, persuasive, and sarcastic.”
“[OReillys] brand of hard-nosed, regular-guy TV talk is here to stay.”
“[The No Spin Zone] vibrates with OReillys gruff Irish wit and elbows-on-the-bar social criticism.”
A twenty-year veteran of the television industry, Bill OReilly has won two Emmy awards for excellence in reporting. He served as national correspondent for ABC News and as anchor of the nationally syndicated Inside Edition. A graduate of Marist College, he holds two masters degrees, on in public administration from Harvard and another in broadcast journalism from Boston University. He lives on Long Island with his wife and their daughter.
