TECHDIRT says that the Reuters story (linked below) saying that Joe Trippi blamed the Internet for Dean’s meltdown is an example of atrocious spin — and notes the discrepancy between contemporaneous blog accounts and the Reuters story.

UPDATE: This post by Matt Welch says the same thing: “I was at the talk from which these stories emanated, and the subject was actually Dean’s dot-com success, as opposed to his perceived dot-com failure. Dude was defensive somewhat, and blurted out little dollops of blame all over the place, but when you read the transcript you’ll see that “Trippi blames Internet” just ain’t so.”

Reuters spinning something inaccurately? Say it ain’t so!
