    The SPIN starts with the headlines.

    Often I find that the headline (usually written by the editor) has little to do with (often is in direct conflict with) the content of the article which was written by the reporter.

    Terrible, isn't it...

    But let's see how the masters of spin do it. Here is Coulter on a NYTimes headline:

    "Winning “Best in Show” was the Time’s headline on an article about the Christian missionary shot dead in Lebanon by a Muslim: ‘Killing Underscores Enmity of Evangelists and Muslims.’ This is like referring to the enmity between a woman and her rapist. She hates him, he hates her. It’s a cycle of violence!"

    When I saw that pic I thought Eleanor Roosevelt was channeling Hillary...

    "NEWS BRIEF:"Hillary Clinton says imaginary talks just 'intellectual exercise', The Providence Journal Bulletin, Tuesday, 6/25/96, p. A3. "Hillary Rodham Clinton said yesterday her imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt were merely an 'intellectual exercise' ... Trying to douse what she called 'sensational' speculation, the first lady rejected inferences that psychic researcher Jean Houston, who led her in several White House sessions, was her 'spiritual adviser'."

    "In a written statement, Mrs. Clinton was firm in her denial that there were any psychic or religious overtones to the sessions. 'The bottom line is: I have no spiritual advisers or any other alternatives to my deeply held Methodist faith and traditions upon which I have relied since childhood.' "

    "Mrs. Clinton met with Houston several times from late 1994 until March of this year, according to a new book [by Bob Woodward, 'The Choice'] that says Houston led the first lady through imaginary conversations with her hero, Mrs. Roosevelt and Indian leader ... Ghandi ... Mrs. Clinton said she engaged in hours of 'freewheeling discussions' with Houston."

    NEWS BRIEF: "First Lady's 'adviser' says she's not a psychic", The Providence Journal Bulletin, Tuesday, 6/25/96, P. A3. "Jean Houston says that the exercises she coached Mrs. Clinton in are much like what is practiced at many corporations."

    HILLARY TO JEAN HOUSTON -- COME ON OVER AND BRING ELEANOR WITH YOU! Christian Updates - New World Order.
