“Censor the internet? Who – us??”

The lies of China’s lying liars lead a PR pro in China to offer some badly needed advice on how to lie gracefully.

As I’ve said many times, if you have to propagandize, do it with some finesse, a touch of class, a hint of elan. Try to learn something from those who’ve turned propaganda into a fine art.

Technically we tend to advise ducking the question rather than lying outright, which has a way of coming back to haunt you. I would never tell a paying client to lie. But I would tell him to bob and weave like a welterweight boxer.

True, I never tell my clients to lie – but I have to admit, I’ve seen them do it, and all I can do is remind them that anything they say can be used against them.
