Default How accurate is rum information?

I had the pleasure of spending a few hours yesterday with a journalist who has worked all over the world and is now writing more about spirits. One of his comments that has stuck in my mind is the credibility, or lack of credibility, of the spirits industry as a whole.

To paraphrase the converstion, when you interview a high-ranking political leader about sensitive topics they are very careful not to say anything that can come back to them, they tell you the truth but not always the whole truth.

How do you feel the rum industry stacks up to the rest of rest of the spirits industry, and the news in general.
