Spinsanity: New Website "Counters Rhetoric With Reason"

Spinsanity's mission is to "use rigorous, non-partisan analysis to expose the use and intent of the simulated reason and public relations techniques that dominate political discourse, and to document how they are disseminated through the media. By exposing these tactics and demonstrating their pervasiveness, we hope to create a greater awareness of how spin operates and corrupts, and contribute to a healthy and vibrant political discourse." It publishes weekly articles and short posts that dissect and analyze some of the most egregious examples of this "new jargon" as they are expressed by pundits, talk radio hosts, politicians and interest groups.
