not just data on things like the iraq war people. data on everything from sex to global warming.

According to the American Union of Concerned Scientists, data is being misrepresented for political reasons. It claims scientists working for federal agencies have been asked to change data to fit policy initiatives.

The Union has released an "A to Z" guide that it says documents dozens of recent allegations involving censorship and political interference in federal science, covering issues ranging from global warming to sex education.

"In the last several years, we've seen an increase in both the misuse of science and I would say an increase of bad science in a number of very important issues; for example, in global climate change, international peace and security, and water resources."

Everyone has a slant on things designed to further their own agendas or well being.

Just look at teenagers who gloss over what they're really going to do at a friend house to their parents so they can go party.

It's human nature.

Some people just never grow out of it and get into politics.
