Court TV puts confab to test

Attendees can take 5-minute polygraph test

There will be no lying at the National Cable Television Assn. convention in Atlanta. At least, not at the Court TV booth.

Show attendees at the booth on May 4 and 5 will have an opportunity to be hooked up to a polygraph machine for a five-minute lie detection session administered by veteran examiner Gene Cella.

If that doesn’t sound like a blast all by itself, consider that test-takers will have a pneumatic tube attached to their chest and stomach to measure respiratory changes, metal clips affixed to two fingers to discern changes in moisture and a cardio cuff strapped to an upper arm to gauge blood pressure and heart rate.

As if working in the cable industry doesn’t induce enough paranoia.
