    ... Lance, Let s consider a legal analogy. If witness A denigrates the character of witness B, do you believe witness A? No fair-minded person would do so

      Lance,

      Let's consider a legal analogy. If witness A denigrates the character of
      witness B, do you believe witness A? No fair-minded person would do so
      without trying to find other evidence bearing on the case. And if there is
      no other evidence, the fair-minded person would surely be forced to suspend
      judgment, in other words, treat witness A's testimony as unreliable, that
      is, the testimony cannot be relied upon to be true.
