Another favorite trick, played by both the media and the politicos . A question will be asked "When did you first find out the disaster happened? The politico will answer " the secretary of disasters never met with me". After this the media will report "Politico denies knowledge of the disaster". Is this what was really said? No. You see the politico rarely has to resort to a lie because he doesn't have to. The media is happy facilitating and the public is to dense to listen with their own ears.
