Do You Solemnly Swear...?
Is there a national surge when it comes to lying on the stand?  Scandal after scandal in the past decade, we've seen headlines about many high-profile cases that have struck a damaging blow to our judicial system.  Why do people lie under oath?  On Tuesday's HearSay, we'll talk with the author of "Tangled Webs - How False Statements are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff."  James Stewart talks about the consequences surrounding the "perjury epidemic" that's "undercutting the very foundation of our courts: reyling on witnesses to tell the truth."   Stewart is a Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter and also author of "Blind Eye," "Den of Thieves" and other non-fiction works.  Also joining us, Marshall-Wythe Foundation Professor of Law at the College of William & Mary, Linda Malone.

Scheduled Guests:
James B. Stewart
- author, "Tangled Webs - How False Statements are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff"
Linda Malone - Marshall-Wythe Foundation Professor of Law at the College of William & Mary, specializing in Constitutional Law
