Two different spins

By | February 17, 2009

Here’s a good example of how the media sometimes spin stories according to their biases.

Newsweek’s “The Decline of the Petro-Czar” is a blatantly pro-Western piece aimed at bashing political leaders who do not see eye-to-eye with the imperialists in America (I’m writing this last part through my own coloured lens to balance the equation).

Contrast this with The Economist’s report on Hugo Chavez referendum victory and you’ll have a good feel where Newsweek is coming from.
