For those of you — you know who you are — who are tired of White House spin, here’s the Chinese version. Do you ever wonder how many people are fooled by spin? Or who falls for it, in our country or others?

(Right now, I’m also wondering if by linking to a story about Tibet on Xinhua will automatically tag me as a troublemaker, and whether this means I’ll end up in prison should I ever travel to China or Tibet.)

Maybe everyone knows it’s spin, and it’s acknowledged as spin and ignored, like an ad for night creme. But if that’s true, why do they keep spinning?
