Following the publication last year of the data collected by Windows 10's built-in telemetry and diagnostic tracking, Microsoft today announced that the next major Windows 10 update, due around March or April, will support a new app, the Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer, that will allow Windows users to browse and inspect the data that the system has collected.

While I doubt this tool will alleviate any of the concerns some people have over Windows 10's data collection, it does at least give some insight into what's being sent to Microsoft - assuming, that is, you trust the reporting to be truthful and accurate.

Which implies you don't expect MS to lie because they cannot afford to, which frankly is a laughable argument.

What can I say? The sarcasm tags are missing. But, no, Microsoft can't afford to be perceived as lying here-- the mere fact that they released the tool says Microsoft believes they have to be more transparent.
