    Maybe Puck can do a report radio drama style, a la The War of the Worlds? Sentient lawn mowers come to lay waste to the fields, sending the moles into a panic?

    Puck doesn’t have to fib to get the moles’ attention. He could, for instance, do a report on the hunting habits of raptors, with a particular emphasis on the dietary requirements of owls …

    I think I may have solved the mystery of where my backyard raccoons are finding their treasure! Today’s “toy” was a beautiful, perfectly intact, well-cared for and sharp pair of what my mom would have called The Good Scissors. Singer brand, hefty, solid metal, the kind you take down to the fabric store and pay the guy to sharpen rather than buying new ones. Tangled up in a bunch of apple green organza. And I happen to know one of my neighbors, whose backyard connects to mine by way of the lane for utility access, makes Quinceañera dresses for the neighborhood on a semi-professional basis. Evidence suggests that these little stinkers may not be getting into their attic but into their actual HOUSE! I’m going to take the scissors and the manatee figurine over after sunup and see if anyone recognizes them. In the meantime I have rescued the scissors, which seem like a dangerous toy for a bunch of baby raccoons!

    There has to be a way of giving a technically accurate report, but that would misdirect the Moles. Pucky Bear’s journalistic reputation is too important to cast away.

    There is precedent. During WWII not everything was reported accurately; omitting certain information, such as the extent of shipping losses, was common. A false story can simply omit some vital information, such as that where the raccoons are moving (regrouping) to, that the opossums have joined them, or that they know Wicket is behind the whole scheme, while being literally true.

    London — It was October 1940, Europe was being overrun by the Nazis, and Britain stood alone against a relentless German bombing campaign. Reporting it all over the radio waves to the American public, from his office across from the BBC, was legendary CBS News correspondent Edward R Murrow.

    Murrow’s reports were broadcast from the BBC studios, and they brought the war directly into American homes.

    At the start of World War II, America was officially neutral. As CBS News contributor Simon Bates explains, Murrow’s broadcasts are believed to have played a large part in shifting U.S. public opinion in favor of joining the conflict in support of the British.

    There was a sizable isolationist movement in the U.S., and it accused Murrow and others of acting as a tool of the British government — and of not telling Americans the whole truth. You might call it a very early accusation of “fake news.”

    In 1939, Murrow explained the rules under which he was operating in a series of wartime memos, recently unearthed by the BBC.

    “We are not permitted to divulge military information calculated to be of value to a possible enemy,” he wrote. “Within these limits we are to have freedom of expression… there are certain matters of a military nature which we shall not be permitted to discuss; it does not mean that anyone is telling us what to say.”

    Puck, you need to be the Edward R. Murrow of BCN….integrity, truth, and within the norms of broadcast journalism. Just your presence is enough to bring the diversion.

    It had to be me

    It had to be me

    I looked around, and I finally found

    I’m somebody who

    Can make this all seem true

    And will make those moles shoo

    I’ll even be glad

    Out with the bad – whatever we do

    Montague I’ve seen

    Might always be mean

    Might be rude and be cross, or try to be boss

    But that just won’t do

    For no one else has the will

    With reports that are false, moles love me still

    It had to be me

    All right, everyone, relax – this seems to be one of those rare situations where lying is permitted to save a life, or perhaps even required to prevent a genocide. (At minimum, it’s a forgivable sin because it promotes a greater good.)

    That being said, I do like the idea of a 100% factual in-depth report from Puck on raptor behavior & dietary preferences…

    Reminds me of a Tom Clancy book, Debt of Honor, where the government convinces CNN to give false reports concerning the operational status of an aircraft carrier, leading the enemy to think it still was in dry dock in Pearl Harbor when it had actually been deployed.

    As others have said, Puck need not lie to accomplish his mission. The best deceptions are based on truth, and letting the enemy make assumptions. Witness what was done with General George S. Patton in WWII: The Germans, with their military mind set and authoritarian regime, could not believe the Allies would keep him out of combat for any reason. He was the one Western general they were afraid of (the other was Russian Georgy Zhukov.)

    German Intel officer: “Patton is in Crete.” (true statement)

    German High Command: “Could the Allies be planning an invasion of Greece? Perhaps to link up with the Russians in the Balkans?” (false assumption by the German High Command.)

    This can be the same thing.
