Don’t do this:

Ashley MacIsaac now says he doesn’t support Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, which is what he told The Chronicle-Herald on Monday.

The Cape Breton fiddler called the paper at the first of the week to say he had decided to throw his political support behind Mr. Harper.

….On Tuesday, after the story appeared in the paper, he called a reporter at a Toronto paper to say that he had made the story up to embarrass Mr. Harper and The Chronicle-Herald.

I think that about covers it. Let me know if you’re interested in the advanced class.
