Spin is the deliberate distortion of truth. It is lies, deceit, manipulation and misrepresentation. In plain English, it's bullshit.
It corrupts and destroys what is good in life. It undermines trust in people and organisations. It makes you lose faith that what is right and fair and decent is not being heard and – worse – is being undermined.
Whether it's spin from famous (infamous?) people like Lance Armstrong or the Koch Brothers, or massive vested interests like ExxonMobil and Credit Suisse and Barclays Bank, politicians and governments, big brands or other institutions, the results are the same. We are let down. Deceived. Angry. Depressed. We can feel powerless to do anything about it and so may become jaded, if not cynical, at the sheer onslaught of such lies and deceit.
So whether you feel fed up or angry about spin, why not join us and we can stand together? You can make a difference. With every action you take, no matter how small or big, you can be a part of our fight against spin.
Join us. Follow us on social media. Take action by becoming a member or ally of Fight Spin. After all, surely it’s better in life to stand up and be counted, than to take it lying down?
Together we can kick spin’s ass (or at least feel better for trying).
