Beware the News Sources!

Compare these headlines:

DOT says Miles Driven increased 0.5% last month!!!zomG prosperity around the corner!

DOT says Miles Driven is still falling on a 7-year record of decline zOMG doomed, dOOmed!

You can’t get your news from only one source – and you never could do – and get the whole picture.  Be careful out there, and remember: if the headline doesn’t make sense, it might be misleading.
