Lying to the Public Is Never a Good Thing

By Michael Sale

The recent news that Brian Williams is returning to television and hoping to restore his damaged reputation, got me thinking again about the consequences of lying. Having spent many years in police public affairs, I learned very quickly that lying is never a good thing and anyone who thinks that lying, or otherwise deceiving the public, is a good choice, at any time, is playing with fire.
