How to make falsehood more successful

Even a broken watch is right twice a day.

"Falsehood is never so successful as when she baits her hook with truth, and that no opinions so fatally mislead us, as those that are not wholly wrong, as no timepieces so effectually deceive the wearer as those that are sometimes right."

- Charles Caleb Colton in Lacon: or, Many things in few words : addressed to those who think, Volume 2
