My brother works for an organization where he gets calls not infrequently from various media. They will ask him to comment on something: lets say question "A".
He responds with the truth - which may be response "B"
Later he learns that 5 other people in his office also got the same call from the same reporter and gave that reporter the same response, which was the truth: ie response "B".
However, the 6th person may have put a slight twist on the answer, or perhaps there really was never a 6th person called, but when the story is published it is - as if from total left field, response "Q". Response "B", which is the truth and what multiple experts have said, never gets mentioned. By way of justification for response "Q", they also print "quoting an unnamed source".
Everybody who was asked what the truth was goes.... WTF? Where did that lie come from?
Other trick, they will send a detailed Public Relations piece to the local newspaper.
Fish Wrapper puts a byline on it along with a single sentence at the start which reads: "This paper has learned......" then the public relations piece is published in it's entirety.
Like they just finished a 3 year investigation instead of the honest to God truth which is really and truly "We found this unsolicited PR piece in an envelope in our mailbox this morning and in an attempt to fill the paper up have decided to run it without changing a line or confirming a word." Oh, we will add our byline and the sentence "This paper has learned" to the start of it.
You'd never know it by reading the piece. End of that rant.
So, what is all the talk about Presidential Erections since Hillarys running: have a nice day Emily Latilla.
