They tell lies and then quote the lies that they have told so that they see no reason to stop doing the thing that they are lying about. The will not stop voluntarily because they see only the money that they will make and look no further than that. Like the tobacco industry, they want to continue to sell tobacco even when people are trying to tell them it is harmful for people's health. They simply never go that far though.

Imagine how easy it was years ago before the internet for themto get away with stuff. Back then only regulatory agencies could catch them at something and even then it was only after overwhelming evidence had accumulated.
