Facts in Context
The very best kind.
Another one I love is the Australian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission. They reckon that, in the 2006-2007 year, they experienced a jump in complaints of 42%. How awful eh? Except they did not. [You will be wanting part 4.3.4]. They used a lowered baseline of averages over previous years to generate that percentage jump. In reality the jump was 27%. Not sure why they have to lie about it. The jumps have been hovering around 10% for the previous three years, so 27% is a big hike.
I guess they want to make us all feel horrible about ourselves. It is definitely what the Palestinians are about.
