BBC Looks at Numbers
The BBC has been running a good series on numbers:
Others have done good work too; it's just nice to have a reminder, given some of the bad election-related numbers that are floating around out there. I have been intrigued this week by the way post-convention numbers for Obama have been represented. He got a big bounce. No, he didn't. All based on how the numbers are toted up.
And on a tangential note, wouldn't it be nice if the cable news networks actually did some, you know, news, especially in the mornings and evenings, instead of running nothing but blather, blather, blather on politics?
Update: and of course, there's the moment when blather turns INTO news, as when Republicans Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy forget that the mics are still on.
