Off With Their Heads. Fox News Channel political analyst and New York Post columnist Dick Morris takes his swing at the cabbage with Off with their Heads: Traitors, Crooks and Obstructionists in American Politics, Media and Business.

Off With Their Heads. The strength of a writer lies in his direct action upon the public, in the anger, the enthusiasm and the reflections which he stirs up by his writings. At first blush, the book appears to be a jumble of topics.

Dick Morris is on a tirade in Off With Their Heads-and that’s good news. Traitors, Crooks and Obstructionists in American Politics, Media and Business.

Off with Their Heads : Traitors, Crooks and Obstructionists in American Politics, Media and Business.

Morris talked about his book, Off with Their Heads: Traitors, Crooks and Obstructionists in American Politics, Media and Business, published by Regan Books. In his book, Mr. Morris dissects and examines several different media outlets that he feels have hidden agendas and attempts to show their biases. The book states that the large majority of news organizations have a liberal bias which has caused many Americans to distrust the media.

By Dick Morris HarperCollins. While most nations have their national newspapers, American newspapers, with the exception of USA Today and the Wall Street Journal, are all local in orientation. The New York Times, however, leads a double life - as the most widely read newspaper in the nation's largest city and the most authoritative voice on national news.

What happened to the unity that so blessed America after 9/11? Where did our sense of determination go?

Our political, journalistic, and cultural leaders have mounted a campaign to oppose and impede the war on terror that seemed so vital in that rare moment of clarity. This book is my personal cri du coeur about deception in politics, journalism, and business—especially when it stops us from following through on the work 9/11 has left for us all to do.

This book takes on some pretty sacred cows, but it's about time they became fair game.

—from the Introduction

Are you appalled by the antiwar tone the news media has taken since the war on terror began—especially "objective" news outlets like the New York Times and the network news?

Are you wondering when liberal celebrities like Barbara Streisand, Sean Penn, and Susan Sarandon suddenly became geopolitical oracles whose advice we're supposed to value above the wisdom of tenured experts?

Are you at a loss to decide who has betrayed us more outrageously: the French who abandoned us in our time of need, or our own elected officials, who tapped our 401(k) savings and the tobacco-settlement windfall with equal abandon?

In Off with Their Heads, syndicated columnist and Fox News Cannel political analyst Dick Morris points an accusing finger at the many ways the public has been lied to and misled, pickpocketed and endangered. Whether it's Bill Clinton, who ignored mounting evidence of impending terrorist catastrophe throughout the 1990s, or the members of Congress, who quietly sold our democracy down the river in exchange for lifetime incumbency, Morris rips the cover off the cowardly and duplicitous figures who have sacrificed America's interests for their own.

From private corruption to public treachery, even longtime political buffs will marvel at the astonishing behavior Morris reveals at every level of society—and at how it threatens to compromise the American way of life.

  • Dick Morris once wrote that he was an independent-that he hated Republicans and Democrats equally. In this book, he takes aim at the liberals in the first part of the book and then hits the conservatives in the second part.
    In the first part of the book, he skewers The New York Times, liberal bias in the media, Clinton's sorry record in ignoring terrorism, leftist Hollywood, and everybody's favorite target, France. I found his writing here to be very informative, enabling me to understand the historical influence of the New York Times, and how media outlets all over the country (and the Democrats) still follow its drumbeat. He also has an excellent recap of the historical forces that have made the French psyche what it is today. He helped me understand why the French are the way they are (though he does not forgive them and neither do I). I was enlightened.
    However, the theme of the second part of the book is about the valuable and humanitarian service provided by courageous and altruistic tort lawyers in fighting the good fight against evil accountants and tobacco companies, and how we need to get them involved in the struggle against evil nursing home operators. (Another chapter deals with the wrongness of gerrymandering, but no lawyers get involved there). He spews anger at any person or body who would try to cap malpractice or punitive damage awards. He comes down hardest on the Big Tobacco companies, demonizing their pernicious effects by asserting fuzzy science facts like "one in three (kids who smoke) will die of the habit". (He cited the tobaccofreekids website as the source of that fact). He spends the first section of the book slamming the New York Times for being so slanted, and then uses The Times as a source numerous times to support his arguments in the second part of his book.
    As a conservative, I had to roll my eyes while reading through the end of the book, but I felt the knowlege and background Morris imparts early on made the book a worthwhile read for me.

  • The author's unique qualifications and experiences inside the belly of the leftist Clinton Administration allow him to backup theories with real life experiences. His description of trade with the NY Times - they get an interview and Clinton gets a free pass on pre presidential activities destroys the illusion of balance in the NY Times. Morris goes on to show how the Times role as the flagship of the American press affects the morning paper delivered to your doorstep in Podunk .
    Certainly this book played a major role in the recent management purge at the NYT
    Morris lays bare the rise of terrorism in the US in a way that will be spin resistant as Tom D and his media friends attempt to escape from responsibility. In the process he exposes the greatest flaw of the Clinton administration, the inability or unwillingness to lead and plan for the future.
    A great read. Provides the required ammunition to counter the spin of the left.

  • Good all around.

  • This is a very well documented peak at the inner working of government and worse yet the highly corrupt media.

    Mr Morris devotes a whole chapter to the New York Slimes (pun intended and my own). This
    media giant has abandoned ALL TRACES OF JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY AND has become a
    modern day purveyor of the old "YELLOW DOG JOURNALISM" where truth is the first casualty of war.
    I know this for a fact because I talked to the Public Editor 4 years ago and asked her why they were
    not covering Benghazi. She actually admitted to me that they were not going to cover it UNTIL AFTER
    THE OBAMA ELECTION WAS OVER because they knew if the truth got it he would have never been
    elected.

    I know this because they are putting scientific innaccuracies about global warming and the the so called
    extinction of the Polar Bear, (they are no where near becoming extinct)

    Then He goes on to tell from first hand knowledge what a coward Bill Clinton was in the Oval Office
    and how weak he truly was when it came to foreign policy.

    This is a man who had a rare seat at the table and is spilling a whole lot of secrets
    with heavy documentation. Kudos sir.

  • Dick Morris' "Off With Their Heads" is a collection of chapters that are more actually opinion columns that belong on a blog (but a blog worth browsing) than a hardcover book. The writing is less sophisticated than Morris' New York Post entries, and by far the weakest parts are those dedicated to combining the chapters into a common theme. That includes the insipid title and awful book cover.

    Few of the writers that criticize either Bush or Clinton have the insider's perspective like Dick Morris. As noted before, the best bits come from anecdotes inside the Clinton White House (Clinton's unwillingness to confront Sandy Berger, veto-but-not-a-veto of the Dodd bill, and to top it all, Jimmy Carter's absurd takeover of the talks with North Korea). Morris gives us the impression that Clinton had his strengths, but his scandals and lapses in moral conviction caught to him and handicapped his authority.

    To Morris' credit, the only direct comparison made between Bush (43) and Clinton is the willingness of Bush to confront the enemies of America. Other comparisons, I'm sure will be the topic of future books.

    Dick Morris' book on the crimes of the 1990's seems a little dated and reads like it was written for less than sophisticated readers (like Goldberg's "Bias"). Hence, the three stars. I still recommend it for those curious about how the events (and non-events) of the Nineties led to the world of 2005 (not to mention 2001).
