How do you know a publicist is lying? His lips are moving.
Check out this hilariously deluded comment from Mel Gibson’s PR man, Alan Nierob (whom we’re told is “himself the child of Holocaust survivors”), in Sharon Waxman’s New Film May Harm Gibson’s Career (The New York Times, Feb. 26, 2004):
“I think Hollywood appreciates good art and will embrace the talent of a filmmaker.”
C’mon, Alan! Even you can’t believe that.
