Spin Busting Lesson: Hidden Double Standards

by Dr. David Gruder

As part of what will continue to be an ongoing series of lessons in spin-busting, I bring you today a clip from Comedy Central’s hit, The Daily Show by Jon Stewart. On this show he provides powerful video clips of politicans and pundits caught in particularly dramatic examples of double standards.

While these clips are from right-leaning individuals, do not think for a split second that there aren’t at least as many left-leaning individuals who do this same thing.

The point of this integrity lesson is that citizens have a responsibility to upgrade their capacity to discern the difference between spin and true education.

I am searching for equally powerful videos exposing left-leaning politicians and pundits engaging in the same kind of hidden dramatic double standards that you will see on this video.
