It's really strange that people think of the polygraph as some sort of supernatural lie-detectorr, when it merely detects nervousness.

The corporate-owned media uses shows like that to promote technological solutions that can be sold to the consumers and law enforcement, while simultaneously convincing the public of the all-powerfulness of the police. I honestly can't stand shows like CSI. It's straight-up propaganda under the auspices of being a murder-mystery show, imo.
