"No matter how smart or well-educated you are, you can be deceived," says James Randi in the trailer for the new film An Honest Liar. If you're at all familiar with his work, I can bet you're pretty damn excited to see a new documentary devoted to this man who knows a thing or two about deception. But does James "The Amazing" Randi have a few lies of his own?
It's no secret that we here at Gizmodo love a good debunking. Whether it's exposing old fake photos getting passed around on Facebook or dubious UberFacts on Twitter, we do our best to fact-check the internet. Because, really, who's got the time? But we owe a lot to the grandfather of debunkery, a magician who made a name for himself by exposing charlatans on TV: James Randi.
