The idea that you have on one hand a very subjective analysis that is not an acceptable method of detecting a lie, because the process is subjective.
The Ultimate Catch 22
This idea that if a lie detector test is subjectively failed, according to a subjective opinion, yet at the same time, if a lie detector test is passed, most of the time you hear the old “Well lie detector tests are not admissible in court”
Ok, you know what, you cannot have it both ways, either it is accurate, or it is not accurate, and science tells us that it is in fact NOT accurate, the reason why it is not accurate, is that it is totally dependent upon the operators subjective analysis of subjective material.
Simply stated, subjective, analysis of Subjective material, yields a subjective result,
(There is not such thing as a Lie detector test)
It simply does not exist because it is based on an unscientific method…
That is a real problem and when you have someone that is made to “take” a test the only thing that is going to happen every single time is that doubt will be cast, upon that persons honesty, all based on a subjective opinion, you could also take ten operators, and get ten different opinions, this is why it is not scientifically relevant in court, because science does not support this method.
Today, on Kellys court a popular fox news segment, allowed a report to be published that might have been inappropriate, for a number of reasons, one of which was that a member of the staff reported that the person that “took” or was subjected to the test, “Miserably failed” the test, now that is just not really accurate, (allegedly)
That is actually not right at all, (allegedly)
It is ok to say that someone was deceptive, or that the test was inconclusive but to say that someone failed a test “using an adjective like miserably” is not only Unprofessional, but could actually be illegal.
The idea that fox news participated in this kind of subjective analytical process is disturbing.
