Just a quick thread about how the media can use its information to portray disinformation graphically. Below is the history of a particular opinion
poll by whatscotlandthinks.org regarding how the "population of Scotland" is likely to vote next Thursday.
Now, to the untrained eye, this graph looks perfectly plausible and you would suspect that the displayed graph is accurate. Well it is NOT.
Lets break it down. The chart goes up and down over the period of about a 18 months. However, the last 2 points used are not to scale with the rest
of the chart. In fact, most of it is not to scale. There are spaces between the points varying from 1 month of missing data to 3 months of missing
data, then right at the end they show a massive change of heart from the Scots showing they support a NO vote. Well this is just ridiculous.
When you map a trend over time, you must use the same variables to get an accurate picture. In this case we must use data on a monthly basis and not
change that. We cannot put 2 sets of data for one month yet leave a 3 month gap without changing the scale of the chart.
I have taken the time to find the correct data and what you will see is that when you follow the correct variables you see a totally different
picture. See below what chart the Telegraph should have used.
What this shows you is that over the course of the past 18 months the "true" picture is that the YES vote is gaining momentum and is trending t a
I despise disinformation, it is one of my pet hates but what also annoys me is that most people will not even notice the effect this disinformation
has on them.
Again, another tactic used by the UK Government and Better Together to force people to believe what they want them too.
