Spin: An Expose of How The Media Constructs Reality

SPIN: A SURREAL EXPOSE OF MEDIA-CONSTRUCTED REALITY

Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captured the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters during 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 of them presuming that they’re off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality.

AND HERE, PAT ROBERTSON GETS EXPOSED BEHIND-THE-SCENES BY BILL O’REILLY

Of course, really bizarre media spin continues in today’s whirlwind political world. The “spinster pundits” are already revving themselves up about Barack Obama. In the video clip presented below, Stephen Colbert points out that Barack Obama has referred to himself as a “black candidate.” Colbert’s guest, Debra Dickerson, disagrees with Obama’s description of himself and says that in the American political context, Obama is not black. Debra Dickerson is a columnist for Salon.com and author of the book, The End of Blackness. Colbert disagrees with the premise of the book, saying, “I want to come out right here and say that I’m against ending blackness. I believe that everyone has a right to be black. It’s a choice and I support that.” You will actually end up feeling dizzy as you try to follow the surreal spinning going on in this video…or the spinning goings on….or whatever….

BARACK OBAMA ANNOUNCES HIS RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY

Democratic Senator Barack Obama stood outside of Illinois’ Old State Capitol on Saturday morning, a building that is unforgettably linked to Abraham Lincoln, and told the world that he definitely planned to run in the 2008 presidential race.

In a previous video announcement on his presidential committee’s web site, Obama said that he’s humbled by the enormity of the task ahead and urged supporters to get involved. “…We begin a great journey. A journey to take our country back and fundamentally change the nature of our politics,” Obama said. Senator Obama evoked a long list of positive images during his actual speech in Springfield today. Obama mentioned his own years as a state senator in Springfield, and talked about that city’s tradition of values and common sense. He reminded people that Lincoln served as a legislator there and noted Lincoln’s role in ending slavery, ultimately making it possible for an African-American politician to run for president.

Obama did not mention his family background, his childhood in Hawaii and Indonesia or that he would make history if elected president. Instead, he focused upon his life in Illinois over the past two decades, beginning with a job as a community organizer with a $13,000-a-year salary that strengthened his Christian faith. He said the struggles that he saw people facing inspired him to get a law degree and run for the Legislature, where he served eight years before becoming a United States senator just two years ago.

I recognize there is a certain presumptuousness, a certain audacity, to this announcement,” Obama said. “I know I haven’t spent a lot of time learning the ways of Washington. But I’ve been there long enough to know that the ways of Washington must change.”

Obama’s decision to make his presidential announcement in the Illinois capital city of Springfield, instead of at another location like Chicago where he lives, or in Washington, earned him accolades. Mr. Obama’s candidacy is generating extraordinary levels of excitement and expectation. A huge crowd descended upon Springfield today for Obama’s announcement that he is entering the presidential race, and similarly vast crowds are expected at a series of campaign stops across Iowa and New Hampshire, the states that are kicking off the Democratic presidential nomination process, as well as at his political base in Chicago, where he is expected to address a rally later today.
