Spin Doctors

I don't understand why the media, the military and our governments have to put a spin on everything. Don't they understand that it's better to tell it like it is, because when the truth gets out, it makes us distrust anything else they say and do, and personally, I am offended that they think we shouldn't know the truth. Take the spin NATO created when they annouced Poland was sending 1000 fresh troops to Afghanistan after their pleas for extra help in the region. Later, defence minister Radoslaw Sikorski let slip that Nato chiefs asked him to announce the long-planned move to give the impression of progress and encourage other allies to join the mission.
