5. It's called 'placation'

when you put on a show for the masses to placate them into not following up on whatever egregious thing you and/or yours did. You keep looking serious and important and you babble on about 'tireless efforts' and 'thorough investigations' until this 'ten second attention span' society we live in forgets it and turns to the next twitter piranha attack. Hey, this method has been working for the last 80 or so years, why mess with a good thing?
