Cooking The Books

I love spin.

It amazes me that you can take almost any news item and watch multiple narratives evolve, each with entirely different viewpoints, using the exact same source material.

“I think this clearly shows that people are entirely in favour of this.”

“On the contrary, I think the data clearly show that everyone is opposed to this!”

Lather, rinse, repeat.
