Do you agree with this statement: 'it is not only permissible for authors to lie, but obligatory' ?

Why/Why not?

obligatory: required by law

Update:

Could you please try to not agree with it because I'm on the negaitve side in my debate and I need reasons why not.

    I guess that depends on what they are writing about. If they are writing a book on how to do open heart surgery then, no. But if its history, politics, or news then yes, I believe in some cases it is obligatory.
