The spin cycle is 24/7 in the 21st century. The two biggest players in the USA are Fox News and MSNBC. Each portrays their attacks counter conservative vs liberal ideas. The conservatives want the status quo while the liberals want progress. There is little compromise in the news provided and each side attacks because media war sells adverts.
The 2 party system is designed, a propaganda tool, to divide and conquer the sheep and thus far the popular news sources are winning the spin game.
