Great GIF...land doesn't vote.

Done properly, the art of data visualization can be an incredibly powerful tool for educating people. It allows us to understand things that would otherwise be ungraspable due to their sheer complexity.

Done improperly, data visualization can be incredibly misleading. It's important that we have talented and hopefully unbiased (I know, what are the odds) designers presenting the information.

As one example of how bad data visualization can mislead, take a look at this map below. What you're seeing is a map of how each county in the United States voted in the 2016 Presidential election (Red = Republican, Blue = Democrat).

It is weird listening to people that can think on their feet, speak in complete sentences, have post college level vocabularies, and aren't traitors.

How is Breitbart and Fox News going to spin the Sanders and Steyer discussion on Wealth Tax without looking like shills for the American Oligarchs?

U.S. intel: Russia compromised seven states prior to 2016 election

The U.S. intelligence community developed substantial evidence that state websites or voter registration systems in seven states were compromised by Russian-backed covert operatives prior to the 2016 election but never told the states involved, according to multiple U.S. officials.
Top-secret intelligence requested by President Barack Obama in his last weeks in office identified seven states where analysts synthesizing months of work had reason to believe Russian operatives had compromised state websites or databases.

Three senior intelligence officials told NBC News that the intelligence community believed the states as of January 2017 were Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Texas and Wisconsin.

Looks like Biden might have seen some of the post-debate polling.

Technically, that's true, but according to the United States Constitution, this is the map that matters :

Watching Buttigieg "debate" O'Rourke was enough to make me think watching the 0-3 Cardinals losing to Washington was a much higher level of excitement.

Debate ratings are down- this was the lowest rating of all. . No wonder. Having all these marginal misfits getting (too much) screen time is a drag as are the idiotic questions.

That article at the 8:46 mark looks vaguely familiar.

Some kernels of truth in there.
