A- Sometimes yes, most often no. When a highly qualified examiner conducts polygraphs for television, the exams are done off-camera before the show and can take several hours each. The examiner may then re-enact a small portion of the exam for the audience, so what you see is never an actual polygraph. Most examiners working for television provide 20 minute exams, ask a dozen questions, and give results that are no more accurate than flipping a coin. Those producers who actually care about the quality of the test and the results will allow the examiner to spend sufficient time with the person tested (up to several hours) and will limit the number of questions to three or less (per exam) to maintain overall accuracy. Most producers are only interested in getting a test done in the shortest amount of time and the smallest budget possible. The Global Polygraph Network will not provide substandard exams of this nature.
