If there’s one thing most people can agree on it’s that we hate liars.  We really just want them to have their pants on fire.

Whether it’s politicians, advertisers, or cheating lovers the act of lying is often times a worse transgression than the acts covered up by the lies. As kids our parents always told us that telling a lie is worse than admitting what you did wrong and taking responsibility for it.

Latest liar in the news is Lance Armstrong, who will go on Oprah to talk about how he lied for 10+ years about his PED use and abuse.

Armstrong’s episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter will air Thursday January 17 from 9-10:30 p.m. ET, and Friday, Jan. 18 at 9 p.m. ET. It will be streamed live both nights on
