The spin of the events

Anoche me quedé viendo Wag the Dog por el cable. Siempre se le encuentra algo nuevo para exprimir esta enorme película. Este fragmento está sacado de este script. No sé si es exactamente como aparece en la película, pero la idea está.

WE SEE A COUPLE OF MEDIA NERDS, BEING INTERVIEWED AROUND A CONFERENCE TABLE.

MODERATOR
...thrust of the Albanian Episode, to put him over the top...

FIRST MEDIA GUY
Yes, you could say that, Joyce, but it wouldn't be true.

JOYCE
What would be true, then.

SECOND MEDIA GUY
Well, you said it yourself, earlier, and if I may rephrase, that the success of the President, in the Polls...

JOYCE
...as of today, 89% favorable.

SECOND MEDIA GUY
Eighty-nine percent favorable, is based not on events...

BREAN
...events.

SECOND MEDIA GUY
Which, of course, we cannot control....

FIRST MEDIA GUY
...no...

SECOND MEDIA GUY
But on the spin given to those events.

FIRST MEDIA GUY
...yes.

SECOND MEDIA GUY
On the meaning found in those events, and given to the public...

JOYCE
...by you?

SECOND MEDIA GUY
By the media, by, yes, by, in this case, our organization.
