Fair and Balanced

Did you know that 95% of all statistics reported on blogs are made up?

Not only that, but you have to be particularly careful when reading reports coming out from the media that interpret poll results. Here’s a perfect example.

Two stories came out from the Associated Press in the last two days. The first story was out on December 30,
AP Poll: Americans Optimistic for 2007.

Apparently, this was a little too upbeat and positive so the next day they offered this story,
Poll: Americans see gloom, doom in 2007.

Here’s the irony: They’re reporting on the same poll!

  1. I was looking at your picture on this blog. Great picture, by the way. I just happened to glance over at the picture of Zachary, and he really favors you especially looking at those 2 picture. And we thought Timothy looks like you. You can tell they’re both your boys. Great looking kids. Just thought I’d throw that out there.
