This is the blog of Chris Ames, who also runs the Iraq dossier website.
The aim of this blog is to look at spin in the media and in particular the cosy relationship between journalists and politicians.
Chris Ames is a freelance investigative journalist and regular contributor to the New Statesman and Comment is Free. He is the editor of the Iraq Inquiry Digest website and created and maintains the Iraqdossier website.
