“Similar in structure to The Speech, this tape suggests the gesture and language of the television proselytizer as opposed to the politician.”

— Doug Hall

This Is The Truth is a recitation of the rules and social codes that makes evident the results of strategic posturing and facial expression on television. Through emblems and selected phrases, Hall dissects those components that produce the image of authority.”

— Bob Riley, The CAT Fund Presents: Doug Hall (Boston: Institute of Contemporary Art, 1986-87)
