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….
