As an investigative reporter and author, I’ve talked with hundreds of people over the years. Many were politicians with agendas. One had a felony record. Others were experts at determining when people were being deceptive. And then there is journalist Sabrina Rubin Erdely who revealed she has a super power!
Charles Johnson at GotNews.com reported today that the Rolling Stone writer, who now faces allegations she fabricated a story about a gang rape at a fraternity house on the University of Virginia campus, told an audience at the University of Pennsylvania she has “a finely tuned bullshit detector and when it goes off I pay close attention because it doesn’t tend to go off without a reason.”
Of course, she added a caveat: “I’m not a person who assumes that everything is bullshit. If something strikes me as being off I tend to question more deeply about that thing.”
Makes me wonder if she has a future as an Army prosecutor like the one involved in the kangaroo court-martial chronicled in my book, Three Days In August, or, better yet, a polygraph examiner like the many spotlighted in my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo.
