Spotting Spin - The Lies Before Your Eyes

http://www.truthlies...s-of-trade.html

unheathy+spin.jpg

Like the spider's web, the type of "Spin" we are talking about today uses deception. Individuals, specific groups or the general public are the intended victims.

Advertising and public relations activities which are truthful and either do not use deception (or at worst use "white" lies) are not regarded as spin.

Does this mean offensive advertising is off the table? 

 

Is this offensive?

It's not censorship if you call it natural selection.

 

mmmm...

 

Maybe using 'natural' would create a different can of worms.

 

Best leave it out.

There, that's better...

George Carlin's "Soft Language" 
 
tumblr_mh5o6e3K2f1r0wybyo1_500.gif
 
Soft language is a phrase coined by American comedian George Carlin to describe euphemistic expressions that "conceal reality" and "take the life out of life."
 
"Americans have trouble facing the truth," Carlin said. "So they invent a kind of a soft language to protect themselves from it" (Parental Advisory, 1990).
