It Ain't Necassarily So CH 4-5

It Ain't Necessarily So (Ch 4 & 5) -- News Writing (EL 227)

"...stories that too often are content to indicate only that the glass is half full(or half empty)-without pausing to explain that in fact the same glass is both things at the same time."

I think that in these chapters the authors basically said that sometimes the journalists mix up the data or scientific research results and that is possibly why many people who read the same story in two differnet papers will become confused cause they are either seeing the percentages or the raw numbers; and sometimes the readers can not identify which story is giving both sides. But this all depends on the reader, not everyone interprets every single story the same. That is just society, deal with it.
