PR guys can only talk based on the information they have been given.
Oh boy, do I wish that were true.
Unfortunately PR folk have a habit of massively embellishing on what they are told, or inventing totally new stuff, without checking back that their statements are justified. At the same time, they like to ban real engineers from talking, on the basis they might actually tell the truth - contradicting the PR person.
If that sounds bitter and twisted, let's just say I've had to deal with the fallout from dealing with the mindset, close up.
