Media Spin

Su How to Save the World trovi una buona spiegazione del termine “spin” applicato ai mezzi di informazione di massa:

“the media have a natural propensity to not report stories that they believe are complex (e.g. the violations of the Geneva Conventions by the US Government), long-term (e.g. environmental deterioration and biodegradation), distant (e.g. Third World genocides and wars unless US troops are involved) or intractable (e.g. famine in East Africa and North Korea), because they are hard, expensive stories to do well, and hence do not offer the ROI of, say, a celebrity scandal or shaggy dog story”

Molto istruttivo.
