Jim Sibbison
Former EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) press officer.

It’s OK to lie to stir up the public.

“We routinely wrote scare stories about the hazards of chemicals, employing words like ‘cancer,’ and ‘birth defects’ to splash a little cold water in reporters’ faces. . . . Our press reports were more or less true . . . . Few handouts, however, can be completely honest, and ours were no exception . . . . We were out to whip the public into a frenzy about the environment.”
