This is a spectacular example of lying through statistics. (cw: gun violence)

murder-violence 

@noelle WOW I'M GLAD I READ YOUR IMAGE DESCRIPTION BECAUSE I DIDN'T SEE IT AT ALL

murder - blood 

@noelle I heard that in this case the author tried to make it look like dripping blood and didn't even notice that it made it less readable

@noelle I find this kind of lying through statistics is common on both sides of this issue which is disappointing because it makes it even murkier and more polarizing than it already is.

@noelle It's pretty heinous shit, and it's something that manages to be both obvious and very deceptive. Seeing the red above the line is odd but not necessarily a tell unless you've worked with discrete data and know the standard conventions for creating visuals.

@noelle All of a sudden I want to see the person who rendered that hung by their feet for a couple hours.

Like "Does everything look right-side-up to you now?"
