When people get into a fight or flight situation, truth is sacrificed in favor of comfortable, yet false, positives. Bill Stierle and Tom dissect Gary Tuchman's conversation with Pennsylvania Republican State Sen. Doug Mastriano, focusing on the reporter's struggle to control the conversation. They discuss how people go to great lengths to challenge the truth just for the sake of getting one controversial soundbite. Emphasizing the power of compassion and empathy in public perception, they explain how these forces can be used to get out of a tight spot. Bill and Tom also detail how this particular scenario illustrates how the human mind's logical side completely shuts down when overridden by emotions and personal beliefs.
