On the difference between an imprecise statement and a lie

"Individuals have made statements that weren’t completely precise and that could have been interpreted by some as being misleading, but that’s a long way from an institution intentionally issuing misleading statements."

-- Eric Kaler, President, University of Minnesota, in Minnesota Daily, April 7 2015

“The allegation that Mr. Markingson was improperly admitted into the CAFÉ study was reviewed by the FDA, the District Court and the Board of Medical Practice, and found to be completely without merit.”

       --  Mark Rotenberg, University of Minnesota General Counsel, in a letter to bioethicists, February 7, 2011

Imprecise statement or a lie?  You be the judge.
