• Question: The 'Pinocchio Syndrome' is where a person cannot lie and if they do, heat levels around the body or face begin to rise immensely. The question is, would someone with this particular syndrome could become a reporter or a field reporter specifically— as most cases news outlets tend to dramatically change the story or change the outlook on the story.

      Hi! Yes as far as I can see there would be no reason not to become a reporter or a field reporter. If you have the syndrome the most common area to rise in temperature is around the nose, but from what I read it isnt very obvious and you would need to actually take the temperature of the area in order to know it has risen. Some people may get redness but people may not jump to the conclusion that you are lying as lots of people can get really red in the face for lots of different reasons!
