Lies about lie detectors; SCOTUS & The Slants (Doug Williams, Ron Coleman)

Gavin McInnesArchive

Today’s episode is all about free speech. First we talk to Doug Williams, who was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for saying lie detectors don’t work. 

He has been working with what he calls these “insidious Orwellian machines” since the Nixon era, but went “from cop to crusader" as soon as he realized they are a scam.

It’s common knowledge that lie detectors don’t work and 60 Minutes proved it when they had Doug on his show. But polygraphs have become a multi-billion dollar industry so big business figured out a way to silence him.

Williams got out of prison on Wednesday and he’s here to explain why being sent there was the best thing that ever happened to him.

PLUS: The Slants are a mediocre band from Portland who were told they could not trademark their name because it’s racist.

Ron Coleman saw this as a violation of their free speech so he brought the case to the Supreme Court and won.

- Americans have the 2nd amendment to protect the 1st amendment.
