    Just What Iraq Needs: More Spin
    Topics: international | propaganda | public relations | Iraq

    I have a gut feeling we are going to be seeing televison (political type) commercials spinning Iraq to the American people, and taxpayer funded obviously. Hmm I wonder if they have to abide by the truth in advertizing laws.

    At the risk of being pedantic... "public relations" is not synonymous with "spin".
