This paper argues that when insincerity on the part of a testifier blocks knowledge acquisition, this failure is due to a type of unreliability. This motivates a principle according to which it is a necessary condition on testimonial knowledge that the testimony be given on a reliable basis. Such a principle differs from other reliability conditions on testimonial knoweldge by engendering a narrower conception of such knowledge.
