One of the most important films of the last 25 years.
Springer spent a year scouring the airwaves with a satellite
dish grabbing back channel news feeds not intended for public
consumption. The result of his research is SPIN, one of the most
insightful films ever made about the mechanics of how television
is used as a tool of social control to distort and limit the
American public's perception of reality.
Take the time to watch it from beginning to end and you'll never
look at TV reporting the same again. Tell your friends about it.
This extraordinary film released in the early 1990s is almost
completely unknown. Hopefully, the Internet will change that.
This is a film
made about the 1992 presidential election and it explains just
about everything that is going on now, 16 years later.
The film shows:
* viable candidates being eliminated by the news media
* politicians being fed slick answers by spin doctors
* hopelessly corrupt news reporters lying through their
cosmetically perfect teeth
The stars of the movie are Bush and Clinton. No, not junior and
Hilary. The other Bush and Clinton show. Bill and Sr.
