Jehovah's Witnesses Misquote Their Cited Sources

The latest example I have uncovered has to do with misquoting the historian Tacitus regarding the Crucifixion of Christians.

"The historian Tacitus reports: “They [Christians] died by methods of mockery; some were covered with the skins of wild beasts and then torn by dogs, some were [impaled]* " (Revelation Its Grand Climax at Hand Page 101).

* footnote
"Compare New World Translation Reference Bible, page 1577, appendix 5C, “Torture Stake.” "------

Here is what Tacitus actually wrote:
They died by methods of mockery; some were covered with the skins of wild beasts and then torn by dogs, some were CRUCIFIED, [Emphasis Mine] (Tacitus, Annals xv.44).

Why Do Jehovah's Witnesses Misquote From Cited Sources? Could it be in hopes that people won't actually look up the citation and just accept their false word on the matter and be more easily converted into a cult member?

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
But imagine if you added some great images
or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the very best
in its field. Wonderful blog!
