SPIN - The Movie.

One of the most important films of the last 25 years.
The censorship that happened in 1992, is happening again in 2007 & 2008.

This is a movie called SPIN by Brian Springer. (58 minutes)

Artist Brian Springer spent a year (1992) 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 (the Bill Clinton campaign) is almost completely unknown. Hopefully, the Internet will change that.

It's not on YouTube in full (there's only a few short clips), so I cannot embed it. I can only link to the website (above). It's interesting, and shocking at the same time to see the SAME censorship that is blatently happening in the present election season, ALSO happened back in 1992 during Bill Clinton's election campaign. If you remember 1992 was the year of the Rodney King trials and riots in Los Angeles. The only difference between then and now - is the INTERNET.
