Huzzah! A book I really like!
Although specifically about Resident Bush's administration and its reliance on a public relations approach to politics, the book (and the associated web site www.spinsanity.org/) provides examples of different types of spin. I find this valuable to decrypting spin from any source. The web site is also more politically agnostic in its targets. Micheal Moore and John Kerry have been called to task as well for using hyperbole or misleading facts. A little subtitle on the web page is pithy and descriptive: The nation's leading watchdog of manipulative political rhetoric.
