Compliments of one of our Eyes

EYE Project: Public Liars
This weekend we received a very interesting email from somebody who is significantly smarter than us.
They suggested we keep track of city and state pubic figures by the types of lies they spew and they provided us with a very interesting and brilliant formula way to do it. As the above chart reflects, there are really four types of lies:
1. Unintentional Omissions
2. Unintentional Fabrications
3. Intentional Omissions
4. Intentional Fabrications.
Our emailer from academia advised us, and we agree, that not all lies are equal and some are indeed worse than others. Some, in fact, are criminal. But they told us it will be very interesting to see what types of lies these people regularly put forward.
So as our...um....local and state leaders step in front of the camera or microphone, we will be watching and listening and plotting them on our chart. 2014 is an interesting year so far, and we expect it to get even more interesting. If any of our readers have suggestions about how best deploy this project, by all means we're all "eyes."
