Fox News Distorting Statistics

http://www.businessinsider.com/fox-n...s-data-2012-11

This is fairly funny to me. Although I do not have a extremely strong background in statistics being in the medical field, this is fairly blatant. Unfortunately, I cannot find comparable episodes from 'liberal' news organizations.

Unfortunately, you weren't looking very hard.



Which is even more extreme distorting than the first example in your link.

I do have a background in statistics and I can say that it is more common to see incorrectly reported data than it is to see it presented fairly.

The middle line is the purple one going right between CNN and Fox, which is fair. I consider them both equally as bias. MSNBC is a ****ing joke.

CNN as slanted as Fox? That's a good joke. Tell me another one.

Clearly you didn't understand the middle line comment. The title of the purple line which displays the middle was called "Fair and Balanced" (Fox's slogan). Whoever made the graphic is showing his bias.

CNN and abc are middle. Maybe a little left. Msnbc is pretty far left. Fox is really far right.

At this point, I'm having trouble considering Tuff as anything more than a biased waste of time.

Clearly you didn't understand the point, which is that all MSN networks except for Fox are left-wing whores.

Go away, troll. No one cares what you think. At all. You are nothing more than a joke anymore.

I know when I'm trying to make something scientific, adding some colors and a graphic goes a long way to legitimizing my claim.

I wish someone would tell those idiots at pew forum to be more scientific and use more pictures and colors.

I saw it and tried looking for an easily exportable graph but that damn report requires you to read it in order to understand the graphics. Damn LIEberals and making **** hard to mis-characterize.

Lol as I thought, you couldn't respond to my post without having to resort to a personal attack. This is proof you have no argument and that you're the joke, not me.

So you post one bar graph from MSNBC and then claim that everyone buy Fox is leftwing. There's nothing for him to go on even if he wanted to. You presented no argument and then jump at his supposed avoidance of it. Joke's on you.

I've never seen anyone say the opposite, so clearly it's a consensus that everybody knows the media is leftwing except for fox. If you think otherwise well then you're just retarded, and there's nothing anyone can do about that.
