El concepto de spin doctor es el que pone un "spin" o sea un giro favorable a las noticias que podrían ser desfavorables de otra manera.
El relacionista público especializado o político cumple esa función para el gobierno y los políticos. Obviamente no lo van a llamar un doctor del giro!

"Comunicación Social", por lo que te sugeriría traducir "vocero", "director de comunicación social", "encargado de comunicación social".

spin doctors usually work for campaign but they can also be seen as apologists working for politicians. Their version of the news or events obviously has to be the one most favorable for their candidate, governor, or President. he spin doctor is always on the campaign's or office holder's payroll. they should not be confused with newsmen or commentators sponsoring the politicians' points of views. James Carville is probably the best'known spin doctor for Bill Clinton.
