Satellite backhauls from 1992 shed light on Presidential Debates
24 Sep 2000
Spin is a documentary by Brian Springer focusing on the events of 1992. The perspective of a satellite backhaul provides insight into a different world in which journalists, politicians and celebrities each put a spin on the news they are generating, and the consequences from such actions. Includes interesting footage of both democrats and republicans which is quite relevant to the debates today.

IN 1995, a documentary circulated amongst college campuses and independent movie theatres which will forever change the way people view and consider news.

The documentary titled Spin by Brian Springer took a look at events in 1992 through a satellite backhaul feed. Those feeds are readily available over the airwaves and are the raw footage that is being delivered to the stations before packaging for final news.

Especially during the upcoming Presidential Debate season, it is essential that people are media-literate, meaning that they can judge the news more cautiously and carefully before making a decision about an item's truth level.

Please enjoy the video footage in ASF format (requires Microsoft Media Player). It is available at in either a full 80 megabyte piece, or broken down into smaller chunks for downloading. There are also some additional links which give a hint about the content in Spin.
