One of the Most Important Films of the Last 25 Years

Watch the whole thing and you'll never look at TV news reporting in the same light ever again. It's called "Spin". It's an oldie but goodie. Hat tip to BrassCheckTV:

Artist Brian 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.

Excellent film. It could just as easily have been called Spin and Omission.

It's the First Estate and the Second Estate, pulling the strings of the Fourth Estate.

We end up paying the price.
