The Venus lie, in my opinion should have been more subtle. But some dumb (probably General) heaped too much on the plate. Its as if he thought to make the lie believable he not only had to have a surface temperature of 800 degrees, but also volcanoes and lava, but also a surface pressure of 90 bars but then rap the planet in sulphuric fumes.
Now think about it for a second. Does that even sound logical?

Isn't that sharp contrast from light to dark because the moon does not rotate? What does that have to do with whether or not there is an atmosphere?
No, the sharp contrast is there because an atmosphere diffuses light and thus blurs the edge between light and dark.
Incidentally, the moon does rotate but it's rotation period almost exactly matches it's period around the Earth - so it appears to us as if it doesn't rotate as the Moon always presents the same face to Earth. If you study the Moon you can sometimes see a little more of the eastern and western limbs (but not at the same time). This is where the rotation doesn't quite match the orbital period.

The moon lie was pretty good. The key to that lie was that the moon had to be placed in rotational lock around the earth so that we could never see the cities on the far side.
That was a clever trick! To go back in time millions of years and lock the Moon in a rotational period of 28 days, 'cos the heavy cratering of the far side demonstrates that it has been facing out towards space a very, very long time indeed. It would be a silly place to build cities as the far side of the Moon is under continual bombardment from meteorites.
