why did Robbie publicly espouse RUCO preservation,
while funding the organization trying to eliminate it while taking campaign contributions
from those who wanted to remove protections for low income renters?
Lying by omission
One lies by omission by omitting an important fact,
deliberately leaving another person with a misconception.
Lying by omission includes failures to correct pre-existing misconceptions.
…Propaganda is an example of lying by omission.

Propaganda is a form of communication
that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position.
The propagandist seeks to change the way people understand an issue or situation
for the purpose of changing their actions and expectations
in ways that are desirable to the interest group.
Propaganda, in this sense, serves as a corollary to censorship
in which the same purpose is achieved,
not by filling people's minds with approved information,
but by preventing people from being confronted with opposing points of view.
What sets propaganda apart from other forms of advocacy
is the willingness of the propagandist to change people's understanding
through deception and confusion rather than persuasion and understanding.
The refusal phenomenon was eventually to be seen in politics itself
by the substitution of "political marketing" and other designations for "political propaganda".
As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense,
propaganda presents information primarily to influence an audience.
Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission)
to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages
to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented.
The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience
to further a political agenda.
Propaganda can be used as a form of political warfare."
