Note the USA Today’s playing fast and loose with their graphs.

Here it is without the “creative” scales which change wildly depending on the topic.

Without changing the scales, the graph has an entirely different meaning, does it not?

A better headline than USA Todays “Gun control: Support grows in general, but not always on specifics” would be:  Majority of Americans still stand against gun control proposals.

One thought on “Unscrupulous, unethical mainstream media’s dirty tricks on parade”
  1. You can’t expect that paper to be objective. They have an agenda, they will do all they can to reassure their audience that no thinking for themselves is required. I would not train a puppy on that rag. Same for the Chicago Libune.
