Managing information

What does it say when you try too hard to “manage” the information that gets out?  Do you have the necessary “control” of that information?  When you try to “control” it, what does it say about you when the information gets out anyway?

This sounds like “the risk of selectively releasing information.”

“Turkey Slams Saudis Over Lack of Clarity About Slain Journalist’s Body,” The Wall Street Journal, November 1, 2018 A9.  Changing stories on the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

Apparently, there are international norms on what you need to say and how you need to say it, even if it information concerns events within a consulate.  Was disclosure legally required?  Maybe not, at least legally.  But when you do disclose, it’s a good idea to do so honestly.  Especially if someone else gets the information.
