perceptual industry
 n.— «Spin is not just a technique. It is not just a political phenomenon. It permeates our culture and our daily life. And it’s an industry—almost a sector of the economy. That one day’s stories quoted lobbyists, public relations specialists and professional “damage control” experts. If computers and communications go by the acronym “IT,” for information technology, the perceptual industry might be “MT,” for misinformation technology.» —“Life in the Spin Cycle” by Michael Kinsley Washington Post Mar. 6, 2005.
