Was there any point at which he inadvertently told the truth?

So, Derek, what part of the word lie don't you understand?

Unfortunately for Derek, even that quote is a lie - he most certainly was lying on purpose!

It's when his lips move...

Jaysus! And he's a senior PR/spin doctor? You couldn't make it up.

In a sense Draper may not have been lying 'on purpose'. These bastards, being amoral, their mendacity comes naturally, probably with little or no forethought. It is fixed; there is perhaps little consciousness of the act of lying.

Doesn't excuse it, though.

It probably wasn't "on purpose". Lying is what these PR idiots do automatically; telling the truth is probably a real struggle.

I'd love to know what his wife Kate Garraway thinks of the whole affair...

"I'd love to know what his wife Kate Garraway thinks of the whole affair..."

Which 'affair' is that?
