Misuse of Graphs and Statics in Media
The Misuse of Graphs and Statics continues to call in to question ethical action of the 24 hour news cycle and how they produce statics.
The use of For profit polling and statics companies means that over a period of time the New source can flex that company to produce results they want rather then results then create an accurate representation of a population.
Further more the use of interactive polls, such as online or text in polls, that are used to as a traditional poll only reduce the effectiveness of actual scientific polls. And once again Journalism takes a hit in and the industry looses in the end.
