(W-Z) release its annual "Truths, Lies and Vindications: 2013 Year in Review" blog analyzing the most newsworthy and televised interviews of the year.

As experts in interviewing and interrogation techniques, W-Z takes an in-depth look at several specific video clips of interviewers as well as analyzing some of the media's own behavior and questioning.
"We are constantly asked to provide opinions on high-profile public cases," said Wayne Hoover, CFI, senior partner of Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates, Inc. "Of course it's easier to analyze the video and the situation after the fact, however professional interviewers and interrogators can always learn valuable lessons from these complex and publicized situations."
"Watching and breaking down both the interviewer and the interviewee is a slippery slope depending on so many unknown factors," Brett Ward, CFI, vice president of client relations, W-Z, writes in his analysis of Incognito. "Factors to be aware of we're unable to consider are human bias, relationship between interviewer/interviewee, goal of the interview, rehearsed anticipation to questions, media portrayal and unknown edits so we try to keep our comments to at least the most obvious behavioral characteristics."
Readers view video of the interviews and hear from the experts on these high profile cases to see who is telling the truth, lying through their teeth or deserve vindication.
