Visual Trumpery: How to Fight Against Fake Data and Visualizations — From the Left and From the Right

With facts and truth increasingly under assault, many interest groups have enlisted data visualization to support all manner of spin. Because digital images and graphics are inherently shareable and can quickly amplify messages, sifting through the visual information and misinformation is more critical than ever. This talk will teach you how to identify the many ways in which charts, graphs, and maps may mislead us.
