Video: Prager U asks whether honesty is always the best policy

Aprops of LU’s report on Barack Obama’s latest whopper(s) come a thought-provoking video that asks when telling the truth wrong, if ever. Can it be bad to say negative things about other people, even if those things are true?

In video that follows, best-selling author Rabbi Joseph Telushkin tackles this major issue. He examines why juicy gossip is so damaging, not just a harmless pastime, and why we have an affinity for it. Then he reveals three questions you should always ask yourself before you say something negative about another person (even if it’s true).
