    "Spin" - a Documentary Assembled Entirely from Unauthorized Satellite Footage

    Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captures the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the early 1990s. Pat Robertson banters about "homos," Al Gore learns how to avoid abortion questions, George Bush talks to Larry King about halcyon -- all presuming they're off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality.

    Great Video!

    I do have some Issues, though in regards to the political spin machines that we see in the Media.

    Although the elites whole heartedly believe in it, and for the most part it is generally able to move mass quantities of people in a general direction, it is in fact much less effective than they would think.

    For one Jimmy Carter Lost the election not because of spin, but because he was in reality a pretty bad president. And even though he portrayed himself as a moderate he was tied to hard core leftist nuts, such as Walter Mondale, and Geraldine Ferraro. Also the Hostage Crisis in Iran, which became a complete disaster because of scale backs in the US Armed forces following Vietnam created a backlash against him as a Presidential Hippie.

    Also Obama in spite of his great advantage media wise really won his election not because of Spin but because the Vote in the primary election split the Right of America between several candidates.

    McCain took advantage of this but as a weak and turn coat Republican he was unable to win the General Election against Obama.

    This being said I think there is a hard ceiling, that once reached more spin will in fact not be effective, because people will see everything the Media says as simply more BS.
