Jeff Crilley’s YouTube videos have great media advice. People respect people if when caught lying they confess. One of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s kids asked him if he was killing more pets in California when he was governor. He had approved a measure to reduce the number of days before killing cats and dogs in animal shelters. Animal rights groups were starting to send out press releases and make a lot of noise.
Arnold stepped up to the mic and said that the proposed money cut in the animal shelters was a mistake. The controversy was over immediately. The animal rights groups had nothing else to go after and the story was dead in a day.
Check out Jeff’s video on other stories of why lieing to the public, media and government will hurt you in the short, mid and long term.
