    Link: Spin - Documentary made mostly from satellite feeds that were not meant to air (one hour long).

    For those who find 57minutes a bit too long to watch from what I`ve seen (10 minutes in), It seems to be a big compilation of satelite feeds and commentary by some guy; dunno who. Seems pretty nice since I never had a satelite dish...I`m poor. |-(

    Minutes 28-31 made me cringe with disgust. I guess that`s pretty accurate as to how WHITE AMERICANS feel about other ethnicities, mainly the NATIVE AMERICANS.

    "What the hell does he know?"

    Columbus was a damn saint compared to Cortez, I`m glad no one has ever made me an american history teacher. I`d tell them the truth, and people would not be too proud to be in a country built on the blood of natives, and on the back of slaves.

    At least NOW they are trying to come out and teach people the truth, but that only comes in college, and even then they crop out the REALLY BAD STUFF.

    Like how in the plains they captured the indian chieftan Big Foot, then took every weapon they had, and even confiscated a lot of their food. They then setup cannons around their camp that the American`s had ordered them to pitch. Later that night they murdered them all.

    After the fighting had stopped they told the little boys to come out and they`d be spared. One by one they killed them all.

    They ran most of the women through with bayonets killing them and their child at once, Big Foot died, and almost his entire tribe was sent into extinction, only a few are left. Sad but true.

    But there is more than that, that`s actually nothing compared to the tribes in the gulf of mexico.

    ...only now we can`t pick it up this easy... :/
    Well, this is just a reminder to us all that politicians and media coverage isn`t always what it seems. Sadly, the masses follow.

    I see that Buddy has been hanging out in Generals again. Link stealer! ;-)
    Anyway, it`s interesting in a way. But, ryan14 is right: 99% of the IAB crowd has the attention span of a flea.

    That is exactly what I was going to comment on, axmodean. Robertson comes out as such a bigot. It`s nice to see him called out by his own words.

    Larry King also seems pretty into himself. Near the end he goes on how this has been a big year for him... what about the presidential candidates?

    One however can`t forget, like it`s name Spin, this clip presents information is a way to support a certain view.

    it was interesting. Larry King does seem really into himself and a bit of a slimball. Also, Dan Rather mixing up Hawaii and Haiti then saying they all look alike. real nice schmuck. Robertson comes off exactly as he is, an asshat (great word axmodean). He is a bigot and a fanatic who has made billions on a perversion of christianity.
    However, nothing really new here, people, politians in particular spin info for thier own needs. It`s just nice to see some proof.

    SPrinkZ -- Read Howard Zinn.

    Too bad most people on here seem lacking in the attention span department. That was a fascinating, cringe-inducing, laugh-out-loud 57 minutes and 26 seconds.

    Pat Robertson`s PR man: "I called them up and said who in the heck is screening these calls? I had one person call him a bigot. I`ve had another person call him a zealot. Let`s get some balance out there."

    Pat Robertson: "The last one was okay, but the first three were homosexuals."

    Well said, Pat.

    Very nice... and I`m not at all suprised by it... I`m sure its a hundred fold more complicated, backstabing, and controlled now.
