This Week: Lies on the podcast (part 2) + mislead/misled

“Mislead” is the present tense form of this verb, but the past tense and past participle forms are “misled.” When you mislead someone you have misled them. The spelling error most often occurs in the phrase “don’t be mislead,” especially in advertising. Although this phrase refers to the future, the helping verb “be” requires the participle “misled”: “don’t be misled.”


On the podcast this week, political lying is still in the news, and we discuss what it means.
