Fair and Balanced?
Mr. O'Reilly gives a brief history of some of the most sweeping changes in US society that have gone on with relatively little fan fare. Although he can not resist taking some jabs at what he calls secular progressives, I thought that the history of that particular movement is well documented. He does take the time to give his own first hand experiences in the "trenches" and does identify "warriors" on the other side.
If you are not a political person, it is an interesting read. It is a little scary at times what is going on the US especially when it comes to the Justice system. I think that he accurately exposes SP ideas and dissects them, because in actuality they all sound like very good goals.
It is a very quick stimulating read that you can definitely do in a day if you wanted to. It just might change your perspective on some things.

Mr. O'Reilly brings up the subtle things the media tries to slip by us. He is fair and balanced and very enlightening! Glad he's looking out for us!
Publishers Weekly, 2006-07-31 In his latest screed, the host of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor mobilizes fellow "traditionalists" against a "secular-progressive movement" supposedly led by billionaire George Soros ("public enemy number one") and the liberal rhetorician George Lakoff. O'Reilly condemns the "erosion of societal discipline" flowing from an alleged "S-P [secular-progressive]" agenda of drug legalization, teenagers' rights, moral relativism, church-state separation, therapy instead of punishment for criminals and, above all, the "communist" freeloader's doctrine that the government should tax the rich to fund housing, health care and early-childhood education for the poor. None of this coheres well, but O'Reilly keeps fans stoked with red meat, including tales of ACLU Christmas-bashers who wanted schools to stop teaching kids to sing carols, and permissive judges who go easy on child molesters. Too often, though, he feuds with personal enemies like "smear-merchant" Al Franken, Hollywood liberals, press critics and unnamed "black-hearted websites." As a result, his populist swagger subsides into kvetching ("Clooney's press agent, a guy named Stan Rosenfield, began badmouthing me and Fox News around Hollywood") and paranoia ("S-P power-brokers... will command their forces to attack me in every way possible"). More resentful and self-pitying than feisty, O'Reilly may be suffering from battle fatigue. Photos. (Sept. 25) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
