The Truth Will Out

Authorities have admitting falsifying data - and no, it's not about climate change.

In a reverse of cooking the books to 'hide the decline' Climategate-style, British police have been hiding the increase:

Police forces are using a series of tricks to manipulate crime figures to give a false picture of their performance, a former senior detective has revealed. The techniques – dubbed "gaming" – are used to create the illusion that fewer crimes are being committed and that a bigger proportion are being solved.
Meanwhile, journalists admit burying the truth:

Off-the-record, former players and sports journalists said that (Tiger Woods') womanising was well-known and that he had long been rumoured to be supporting a mistress on the West Coast.
Really can't trust anyone these days, can you?
