The Report

A report may contain information without providing information. The technique resembles that of people who answer the precise question without answering the one that was clearly intended. Reports have much more wiggle room.

Authors of such documents carry an ethical obligation to determine the actual needs of their audience and then to provide the information as clearly as possible. The deceivers won't be so obvious as to say,"That key point was indeed addressed on page 188" but that's the game being played.

Is it a real report or a report that is meant to be an alibi?
