Our “lientists” — social scientists specializing in lies, falsehood and post-fact research, armed with the most powerful lie detectors yet invented discovered the Meta-Lie, on February 14, 2017. This one’s been hiding in plain sight for quite some time. However, it had never been carefully weighed and categorized.
The Meta-Lie has a lie-number of 72 and the symbol Mt. It’s a rather heavy lie, but it does occur naturally. Though it tends to be found mostly in politicians since it involves lying about a previous lie.
