Storyline

Pirated satellite feeds revealing U.S. media personalities' contemptuous plans for their viewers come full circle in Spin. TV out-takes appropriated from network satellite feeds unravel the tightly spun fabric of television, a system which silences public debates and furthers the intolerance of anyone outside the pack of journalists, politicians, spin doctors and televangelists who manufacture the news. Spin moves through the L.A. rebellion and the floating TV talk-show called the 1992 U.S. presidential election. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Brian Springer: 1992 was the year of kings. There was the L.A.P.D. beating of Rodney King videotaped from an apartment balcony and the hovering coverage of TV cameras and helicopters circling the city as the public rebelled. It was nearly twenty-five years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King and Bill Clinton, a child of the '60s, was campaigning to become commander-in-chief, a king among the contenders.

Absolutely Stunning!
13 January 2004 | by (College Park, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Someone please tell me where I can find a copy of this for sale! This should be mandatory viewing for high school students and every American.

This pretty much killed Pat Robertson's hopes of becoming President. It is amazing to really see the discriminatory remarks come from his mouth and then to hear the television producers (or the spinners) laud his behavior.

I know people who protest at political rallies and upon seeing this film, I was able to inform them how the television directors will manipulate the camera set-ups and microphone set-ups to cut them out of the shot, making it impossible for the protesters to be seen or heard. The wide shots simply make it seem as if they are a part of the crowd supporting him.

An amazing piece of film. Also, see the film "Feed" (1992) which is even more great political footage recorded by the same director, Brian Springer.
