The Last #NCSPIN of 2014
NCSPIN Upside DownThe video of the last NC Spin of the year has been posted.
Part truthiness and part chuckle-worthy.

Fitzsimon Beclowns Himself On #NCSPIN Over #APUSH
How many false statements, tea party smears and general bile can one fit into 1 minute and 23 seconds?
Watch @Fitzsimon make an ass of himself on #APUSH with a fountain of smears and rhetoric. http://t.co/SKgFYBQJU2 #nced #ncpol

It’s clear from the moment he opens his mouth, Fitzsimon knows NOTHING about APUSH. Reminds me of the type of crap News and Observer put out on APUSH. Alternatively, Fitzsimon does know APUSH is seeing a radical, leftist swing which is why he politicized criticism of it to death in less than a minute.

A lot of Spin on NC Spin Post-Election Episode
The amount of spin by Chris Fitzsimon in this episode is worth watching. John Locke’s Becki Gray does a nice job redirecting some of his comments.
The idea that this election was a refutation by voters of Obama’s policies was undeniable.

#NCSPIN On Test Scores And ‘Lowering The Bar’ (Video)
Episode #828 of NCSPIN covered the recent release of test scores in North Carolina. The host, Tom Campbell, opens up this portion of the show with a statement of ‘at first glance it looks like our schools made great gains’. The raised passing rate is quoted and then it’s mentioned that the scoring system was changed which made it easier to pass the tests and making it nearly impossible to compare this year to any past year’s scores.

NCSPIN Covers NC Homeschool Explosion
At the tail end of NCSPIN episode #827, they covered the explosion in homeschool rates in North Carolina.
At about 23:44, the host makes mention that a lot of the feedback from those pulling their kids to homeschool was due to Common Core, then segues into the NC General Assembly ordering a “re-working” of Common Core. The host asks former Lt. Governor Wicker if the changes to the Common Core will bring those parents and students back into the public school system. Wicker said no, ‘more and more find it an attractive option’. Wicker also did an apologist dance for the Core, saying it was ‘misunderstood’.
