Misleading People With Graphs

I was very saddened, but not shocked, to see this piece of BS posted by Jerome Armstrong over at MYDD.

I was pleased to see him nearly universally called out as being dishonest in the comments on the site though.

You just don't clip the axis on a graph like that, it is fundamentally dishonest and the only reason that one would do it would be to attempt to make a point that really isn't supported by the facts.

Oh, right .. he is trying to say that Hillary wuz robbed .. never mind ...

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
