MONDAY: A little misdirection can go a long way . . . [WK5]Letâ€™s start this week by identifying potentially misleading information in an argument. Choose ONE of the scenarios and then discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the argument presented. Pay particular to whether or not the argument uses any deceptive statistics, such as making any apples-to-oranges type comparisons. Remember, the issue isn’t whether you agree or disagree with the argument, but rather whether the argument is playing fast and loose with any of the facts:
