One of the most important aspects of good newspapering is the ability to tell when someone is or is not a fucking liar. I know many of you think that news reporters use "intuition" or perhaps "corroborating stories" to tell if someone is, or is not, a fucking liar. Actually, while those methods had their place in the old-timey days of the late 1900s, the Mercury now uses the most up to date "science of technology" to help us figure out who's a fucking liar, and who ain't—and that means we use THE TRUSTER. How does it work? Watch.

It also works on lying employees, lying babysitters, and especially everyone in the Mayor's office.
