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.

Satellite Tells Truth
8 November 2000 | by (Syracuse, NY) – See all my reviews

Documentary made up of satellite feeds from political candidates during the 1992 Presidential Campaign. The cynical film doesn't take political sides, but reveals the raw manipulative power of television. Whisperings between candidates with Larry King during commercial breaks about drugs they take, about Ted Turner as "The Boss". The media deciding for the people who gets the nominations. Anyone with speculations about how the media and politics in this country work should really check this unique film out. Satellite feeds are no longer recordable to the public. This is a moment of truth in history. Every politically conscious American should see it. This is often hysterical.
