Atlas Shouts’ Research Proved How to Spot a Liar
My book research for “Atlas Shouts” led me to investigate interrogation science: How to spot a liar. Remember the TV Detective, Columbo? Columbo formed his key personality quirk around asking an interrogator-style leading question with as much “gosh I’m stupid, but…” drama he could muster. The inquiry is textbook cross exam practice, aimed at exposing conflicts in the story.
There are 11 tactics, listed in “Atlas Shouts”, of someone attempting to hide the conflict exposed by the question. In this case they are “prevaricating”, the generic term for lying.
If someone is accused of lying, the honest person will ONLY attempt to clear up the misconception of a lie. If the person is actually “hiding a lie”, well then they have a different concern on their mind: How do I defend my lie as virtuously as possible?
The Press Just Asked A Liar’s Question
The press asks the press a question only a liar would ask: “Should we take him seriously?” Only a liar would ask themselves that question.
An honest person says “I have not lied, tell me where you think I lied and I’ll clear it up for you now”
The Liar’s Question
“There’s been a debate about when to take the president seriously,” CBS’ John Dickerson said in a “Face the Nation” interview with Priebus Saturday. “He recently tweeted that the press was the enemy of the American people. Should we take that seriously from him?”
“Well, I think you should take it seriously,” Priebus replied. “I think that the problem we’ve got is that we’re talking about bogus stories like the one in the New York Times, that we’ve had constant contact with Russian officials. The next day, the Wall Street Journal had a story that the intel community was not giving the president a full intelligence briefing. Both stories grossly inaccurate, overstated, overblown, and it’s total garbage. So we spend 48 hours on bogus stories. And the American people suffer. So I do think it’s a problem. And I think that the media needs to, in some cases — not every case, John — but in some cases really needs to get its act together.”
