NEWSMEDIA QUOTES ABOUT NITV, CVSA & CHARLES HUMBLE

INDEPENDENT   NEWSMEDIA   SAID   THIS   ABOUT   NITV,  CVSA   AND   THE   OWNER!

Humble claimed he was certified as a polygraph examiner at a polygraph      
             school in 1986 called International School of Lie Detection and 
              Interrogation, located in Lake Worth, Florida.
             The APA (American Polygraph Association) confirmed NO such 
             polygraph training school ever existed by that name in the USA

Humble fined $61,000 for copyright infringement.
             Indianapolis Business Journal, November, 1988

“In the late 1970’s, he (humble) was ordered to repay $3,220 in unemployment 
             payments… he had collected benefits for11 weeks while a
             polygraph examiner”.
                  John Wilkens, Union-Tribune, December 1998

“The cvsa reading is absolutely meaningless without a person’s own verbal 
           admission”
              Victoria News, 2011; Bob Wall, former Saanich PD, Canada, detective,
               instructor for nitv for many years.

“I am a cvsa operator…It is not a lie detector. It does not reveal when people are
             lying. It cannot do so”
              Bob Wall, 2011; nitv instructor for many years, former Saanich PD 
             Canada, detective; Letter to Editor, Vancouver Sun;  Note: Saanich  PD
             stopped using cvsa many years ago.

NITV agreed to pay…. civil penalty (almost $100,000)… in connection with
       unauthorized exports of CVSA to countries not  considered friendly to the U.S.
                Dept. of Commerce, 2006

“NITV acknowledges that the CVSA is not capable of lie detection”….
               Indianapolis Star, November 2004

“They call them Advanced Classes…. they are only a rehash of the basic class,
             only done faster”.
              Mike Brick, President, Southern Association of Certified Voice Stress 
              Analysts(SACVSA), 2007 SACVSA Newsletter; referring to nitv’s
              annual “recertification” of  cvsa examiners. SACVSA members are cvsa
              examiners.

Humble was asked to design a cvsa validation for DoD(Department of Defense).
              Humble never did.
              William Yankee, Director, DoD, March 1991.

“The cvsa was first used during the Vietnam war….during that time it was called
            the PSE”
            Nitv website, May 2003.  LIE: Cvsa first sold in 1990. Vietnam War
            ended in 1975.

“In 1986, a nationally recognized company made the decision to produce a new
              voice stress analyzer….searching for an individual to head 
              project….chose Charles Humble”
               nitv website, May 2001. LIE! Humble changed that story about 1990 to
               only HE invented cvsa and training ideas. There was NEVER
               any company asking him to invent a new voice lie detector and training.       

“I asked Wiebe to show me the “clinical studies” that show the device(cvsa) is 98% accurate, as he advertises on his website(IVT). To my surprise, he said he had never seen any of them. He said he simply took the claim at face value from NITV”.
               David Baines, Vancouver Sun, 2011. Wiebe & Wall have taught AIS for 
               Nitv for many years. AIS is Nitv’s body language course. Wiebe & Wall
               have Cvsa in their lie detection business. Former detectives with Saanich
               PD. Saanich PD stopped using cvsa many years ago.

“ITV claims clinical studies show  cvsa, used in conjunction with the expert interrogation techniques used and taught by ITV(Nitv) is 98% accurate with no inconclusives”. But, neither ITV or Nitv can produce an independent study to back up this assertion”
              Vancouver Sun, March 2011. David  Baines
            
              .
“Nitv decided not to sell cvsa to the private sector because it did not want
            organized crime to identify undercover law enforcement”
           Nitv website, May 2001.  LIE! Because of very low sales for about the
           past 15 years, because of poor cvsa accuracy, starting in about 2015 cvsa is 
           being sold to basically anyone so nitv can make money.

William E. Burke, 49, of Odessa, a defense contractor at SoCom, pleaded guilty to
             bribery… The type of Federal contracts Burke would have overseen
             ranged…. To $690,000 for a field interrogation tool (cvsa) that would
             analyze stress in the voice….”
                      St. Petersburg Times, Oct. 15, 2005

Oklahoma Department of Mental Health, 2007
            Another study, using real crimes, that showed the accuracy of the CVSA
             was only chance level and the system had serious design flaws.

           FBI, KTNV-TV, 1997

            Department of Defense letter, September 1996

“It is an honorary degree…awarded by a storefront college”
