My old, er... I mean former boss at Hot 103 in Winnipeg posted the link to this article on his Facebook the other day.  I think that it is a great follow up to the ECMP 355 Tech Task 5a discussion(s) about the Coffee: Good for you or bad for you? article, in that it gives six examples of how the media manipulates or omits facts to present the version of the story that they feel will get more attention.  These (bad) examples can help us make our own writing as clear and as credible as possible.  My favourite example is probably the one of the politician who's preparing dinner for his family.  What's yours?
