Everybody Watches

If you've got a second (more like an hour), check out this documentary about the 1992 Presidential campaign. The director, Brian Singer, spent a year monitoring raw satellite news feeds. The result, titled "Spin", is a surprisingly coherent edit of some of the more fascinating off-camera exchanges, most notably between Larry King and the three candidates.

At the very least, zap through to the last five minutes where, as Tipper Gore prepares for an interview, a campaign aide explains how the Clinton campaign headquarters monitors all the raw feeds also. Which is how they were able to respond to news coverage, and Bush campaign commercials, before they aired. And know that Tipper needed her makeup adjusted.
