That's my take on "spin" too [In reply to] Can't Post

Spin has a negative connotation for me because it has been used so frequently to misdirect and misinform the public by certain politicians who shall remain nameless. It always seems to involve exaggeration and innuendo, if not outright falsehood. Trying to make something into what it is not is spin's very essence.

Jackson and Walsh's statement didn't seem like that to me. It was an attempt to persuade, yes, but not an attempt to hide or conceal their actions, desires or beliefs.

With caffeine, all things are possible.

The pity of Bilbo will screw up the fate of many.
