Spin Doctors and the "Big Lie" List
By Cindy Furnare
August 23, 2000
THE TRUTH is simple. It has no flourishes or embellishment. The truth
may be a long
story or a short story, but it is not complicated with questionable
twists and turns. It is
open and honest. The truth doesn't hide in dark corners where the light
upon it. The truth is never congested with complicated lies or spins.
"And ye shall know
the truth, and the truth shall make you free." -John 8:32.
"THE BIG LIE" is the legacy of the Clinton-Gore administration. While
some people feel
that Hillary Rodham Clinton has been the biggest enabler of "The Big
Lie," I will have to
disagree. The primary contributor to "The Big Lie" has been the
pundits featured prominently in the main-stream media day in, day out,
SEEING RED is what occurs when one sees or hears "The Big Lie" spinners
in action. As
a tribute to "The Big Lie" legacy; I have decided to create an ongoing
"SPIN DOCTORS and 'THE BIG LIE" LIST. While lying may be acceptable with
politically correct crowd, it sure holds no weight at all with me and
you. So, with that in
mind, I will begin "The Big Lie" List with media spins which make me see
red. Please feel
free to contribute to this list. Send your literary contribution
(remember: children read
this list, too) to email@example.com. BROAD HINT: This list may be used
as a memory
jogger before you go to your polling place and vote this November.
