Why you should be careful...

This article reminds us why we should be careful consumers of media, especially when it comes to statistics, numbers, and polls. Don't forget that much of the media exists not for the sake of truth but rather for revenue. The scarier the story, the more the threat, the more likely you'll look and watch the ads. Because of this the truth is often subservient to the impact of the potential story.
