edge is one of the reasons why we created this website, to see if we could find
and identify it. To make it easier to understand spin, we looked at three main
news stories-Saddam Hussein’s trail, Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, and
Hurricane Katrina. We chose these three stories because in America they were
HUGE, and we wanted to know the other side of the story, or even if it was told
in a different part of the country. I bet that if you read a newspaper from a
different country and compare it to the newspaper you normally read, there will
be a difference, big or small.
According to the American Heritage High School Dictionary:
spin - n. 7. To provide an interpretation of (a statement or event for
example), esp. to sway public opinion.
