Public relations, private interests
It's a $1billion industry that no longer puts out just press releases. Anne
The English comic eccentric, Quentin Crisp had a wry take on the art of
television interviewing. First..he would tell his audience..decide what you
want to say and if its a wonderful story about your mother, and the wretched
interviewer asks you about your father..you simply say...well my father was
not like my mother and proceed to tell the story that you want to tell.
That's what skilful politicians do all the time...they're helped in this
communications process by what's known in the business as spin.
