Everybody lies that is what I heard when I used to watch Doctor House on television and whether you think commercials have been subtlety lying to us for years they are doing it blatantly now. There is a commercial where a woman is trying to win a radio contest and she is asked if she has even won before and she denies. All the while her home is filled with the spoils of her past victories an obvious lie. . For sometime a lot of the sit- coms have been using lying as the main plot theme. Consequently, we can conclude that lying has gone main stream in America. However, then why is it a crime to lie to a police officer, when we teach the art of lying on television?
