Do you expect important leaders to lie?

I’ve grown accustomed to hearing lies from leaders representing large banks, drug companies, insurance companies, financial institutions, food companies, congress, multi-national corporations, military industries, government agencies, and mass media. Our universities seem to take pride in producing the best liars/deceivers/spinners in Public Relations and Marketing. Our economy rewards these people excessively.

Have most people in the US come to expect leaders to make deliberately misleading statements?

Chosen Answer:

Lying is how you get things done.
