Tort Reform Spin Wars – a New One from the American Tort Reform Association
Here’s a new YouTube vide and article with spin from the American Tort Reform Association. As is typical for spin, it’s full of sound bites but lacks citations and links to supposedly supporting evidence. Spin doctors usually do not like being limited to the facts.
Note further that Louisiana’s Republican primary is on March 24. The timing is not a coincidence, and instead the message will blend well with Republican themes of bashing plaintiff’s lawyers as the cause of unemployment. On the other hand, some might wonder if the BP spill and the Great Recession were factors in job loss in Louisiana.
