In class, we saw how blatantly misleading some graphical representations of data can get, the FOX News line chart is a particular example. As I stated in the previous example, my intention was to correlate very unrelated data to highlight how ridiculous this misrepresentations can become. From the class reading, we read that graphical excellence includes depicting the data as objectively as possible. But because all graphics are presenting the data in a way that the audience sees a certain trend, they all are trying to convince their audience of something. This means all graphics are potentially misleading, because the relationships between the data may not exist regardless of the correlation.
