Bill Clinton is the most investigated president since Richard Nixon - facing inquiries into Whitewater, campaign fundraising abuses, and sexual misconduct - and yet he began 1998 with approval ratings as high as those of Ronald Reagan. But the new year has brought a barrage of new allegations, and the president and his advisers face once again the challenge of spinning the news to their advantage, a challenge they have mastered many times before. In
Spin Cycle, award-winning
Washington Post reporter Howard Kurtz reveals the inside workings of Clinton's well-oiled propaganda machine - arguably the most successful team of White House spin doctors in history. He pulls back the curtain on events and tactics that the administration would prefer to keep hidden.
