If you’re the kind who worries about right-wing conspiracies to take over your mind, you’ve probably already read the first edition of Sharon Beder’s Global Spin. And you probably read it with some glum satisfaction: satisfaction because someone – an Australian, yet – had taken on the PR monster in a measured, reasoned, researched, scholar’s way; glum because it would probably make no difference.
