Yep! "... what we have are stick-figure spokespeople stuck out before the cameras either because they look good in the glare of lights or are unrattled by questions uttered almost before they can be thought through to produce spin that passes for news."
However, the point is dictated spin they will echo or be fired. The solution is to turn it off. Turn off the "news" that spins. By not turning it off, you facilitate it.
Yes, sometimes you have to see what's being said just to know to turn it off again.
They don't make it easy. The "they" being the corporate media. They do their best to block everything else. The major social-media is fully in bed with them now on that (was always headed in that direction), so the alternative needs to be created and used or forget it.
