Telegraph Caught Out

Recommended Posts

Saw this interesting piece of manipulation from The Telepgraph on Google News. The same article with 3 very different slants posted within an hour of each other. Apparently lending has gone from plummetting to surging 13.5% and then surging to 25% all in the same time frame. We all know housing statistics are used to present a biased view in the media but I've never seen it laid out so bare before. Despicable.

It's quite clever really,

Put loads of versions of the 'truth' out there and allow people to pick the 'truth' which fits their world.

:lol:

Don't get me wrong....the mainstream media is 99% complete and utter BS.

But this one is all about frame of reference.

YoY mortgage lending is up about 15% for June.

QoQ for Q2 mortgage lending is down about 9%

MoM mortgage lending is up 3% for June.

etc....etc.....
