Ryan Gosling’s lesson on political communications
There’s an old axiom in politics, 'if you’re denying, you're dying.' In other words, using negative language when defending yourself is rarely persuasive.
My all-time favourite movie on politics, Ides of March, provides a good lesson in political communication. I’m talking about a scene in that movie where a political consultant, played by Ryan Gosling, pictured, learns that his candidate’s rival in a Democratic presidential primary race may have invested in a Liberian diamond mine.
