Failing to tell the *whole* truth by selective
omissions is not the same
as a lie, which would be to make claims that are knowingly false. If
the 1985 and 1995 editions of a biographical dictionary treat a person's
Communist Party association differently that doesn't change the fact
that both of those editions were in fact published You can compare the
two editions, and note any differences.
A "lie of omission" is often considered to be a lie, as the name suggests.
Sure, *some* people will tend to do this sort of
thing, but that is not
the same as accusing all biographies there of being full of lies.
Nobody made any such accusation.
