About: Lying with Data: How the Media Manipulates Statistics and Facts


My neighbor pointed out this week's TIME magazine at the grocery store checkout counter. In BIG letters on the front cover it read *NOBODY'S ABOVE THE LAW!". I burst out laughing. Then my neighbor looked again and she starting laughing. We were laughing so hard people around us asked what was so funny and I showed them the propaganda rag and before long half a dozen people burst into laughter as well. It was a great time by all! BTW: It was very encouraging when I read an article online about the brainwashing LYING big TV networks crying about 21 million people cutting their cable service in 2016. At least SOME sheep hear the fascists sharpening the axe!
