10 Worst Lies In American History

The Black Sox baseball players

At the 1919 World Series, there were eight Chicago White Sox baseball players who lost on purpose against the Cincinnati Reds, as they were bribed with $100,000 by the gambling business. People started to become more and more suspicious when the White Sox athletes started the game by playing uncharacteristically bad for their style, especially in the best-of-nine Championship Series.

A grand jury then initiated the investigations on this scandal, discovering that the crooked players, dubbed the Black Sox due to their sports conduct, were found guilty of nine counts of conspiracy.

However, the court’s records that were documenting the confessions disappeared, and the “Black Sox” athletes were suddenly acquitted of all charges, receiving nothing but a permanent ban from playing in the Major League Baseball.

  2. EXCELLENT ARTICLE. I HAVE HEARD OF MANY OF THESE DURING MY LIFE AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER. THE WORST ONES ARE THE POLITICAL LIES THAT PROBABLY INFLICT MORE DAMAGE AND SUFFERING TO ALL MANKIND THAT ALL THE OTHER CATEGORIES COMBINED. MY FATHER TOLD ME OVER SIXTY FIVE YEARS AGO THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LIKE ANY GIVEN POLITICAL FIGURE, YOU CAN NEVER TRUST ANYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS. HE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AS HE WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED IN LOCAL POLITICS AT THE LOCAL AND STATE LEVEL AND WAS PRETTY MUCH DISGUSTED WITH THE SYSTEM IN HIS LATER YEARS.

  3. HItler was right! Jews were and still are the enemy of society and now globally. They own every centural bank in the world, news stations, Hollywood, TV shows and all to control and manipulate the world.

  4. I am having trouble understanding how the 1919 Black Sox scandal qualifies as a “lie,” or the Cuban missile crisis.
    That’s two of the first three: time to quit.
