    •  Charts that visually distort reality (0+ / 0-)

      are widely used to spin data. This is also often seen on financial channel to spin the reality. As the twig diary shows this kind of distortion is much the same as simply lying about the facts.

      As a long-time graphic designer I always cringe when data is visually distorted. I think it is often done intentionally, but it is also done out of ignorance.

      War is costly. Peace is priceless!
