    Thought this was appropriate to share on the journalism board given the obvious implications--discussed in the article--for journalism.

    For instance, I remembered Dick Whitman posting this.

    There is a really great novel based on "fake memories" by Julian Barnes called "The Sense of an Ending". Chilling read that has nothing to do with this topic but is worth the read.

    I read something similar to this in either Esquire or Details several years ago where they had a video of something happening and they asked four people for their accounts of what happened. The four versions were incredibly different and all inaccurate, but all of them passed lie detectors showing this was how they remembered it and not anybody embellishing or making anything up.
