Spin - Footage you were never supposed to see

Don't just see what's on TV, see through it.
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.

Take the time to watch it from beginning to end and you'll never look at TV reporting the same again. Tell your friends about it. This extraordinary film released in the early 1990s is almost completely unknown. Hopefully, the Internet will change that.



Thanks to Sinclair for flagging this up.

that was a great but sick video, cheers for the alert, looks like Larry King runs AmeriKKKa the way all those politicians defer to him and get coaching on how best to present themselves. proper hideous

Great link. Amongst much strangeness, Larry King seems a complete lunatic. I can kind of understand where David Icke is coming from when I see people like him. Something deeply, deeply weird going on...not that I didn't already knwo something deeply, deeply weird is going on.

And that's mainly very old footage.

Imagine the resources plowed into stage-managing the global putsch of the Fourth Reich.

What I mean by the weirdness is beyond the inside-jobs & NWO. I'm reasonably well-informed on all that & in no doubt as to the mass-fraud going on by these sickos.
In a sense, though ,what's added to the picture by this film is the idea that these Bushes & Clintons are very far from autonomous people driving things forward. They come across as shells, barely human. There is genuinely something disturbing about Larry King especially who seems more conscious, but barely human, especially in about the 50th minute I think. For people like George Bush Snr who I'd imagined to be near the top of the ladder, he seems switched off & pathetic. But then of course they can switch on when the time demands it. Dostoevsky has a great novel, Demons, sometimes called The Possessed, and maybe there's alot to be said for that idea...that through whatever occult directions these people go in(Skull & Bones, etc), they genuinely become possessed by outseide forces, and while they are personally evil, they're also deeply pathetic, & tools for something beyond themselves.

Didn't exactly flesh out DOsteovsky's idea which was that the would be revolutionaries of his novel & 19th century Russia, were possessed by 'demonic' ideas rather than possessing them; the ideas themselves as kind of malign spiritual entities or emanations of malign spiritual entities.
