Spinning Intelligence

Why Intelligence Needs the Media, Why the Media Needs Intelligence

edited by Robert Dover and Michael S. Goodman Goodman

  • Looks at the symbiotic relationship between the intelligence community and the media.
  • Contributors include former spooks, journalists and academics.
  • Shows how intelligence agencies feed stories to the press to 'spin' key issues and how investigative journalists uncover stories like 'extraordinary rendition' that the CIA/MI5/MI6 would rather keep hidden.
