    That “Graph of the week” is a prime candidate for a “How to Lie with Statistics” piece: showing a jump from 25M to 44M by setting the baseline at 24M makes what’s less than a doubling appear more like a twentyfold increase.
    The trend, and the human realities it reflects, is bad enough, but the presentation is exactly the sort of manipulative dishonesty we expect from Murdoch minions.
