Can graphics lie?
They can certainly mislead. This chart was found in a discussion of evening news viewership.
Is the NBC audience significantly older than ABC's?
Not really. A table would a) take up less space and b) make the main point that the age profile is very similar: 59.7, 59.9 and 60.1 years. If five months makes a difference then I stand corrected.
Given that the median US age is 35+ and the adult median is around 45, where are the rest of the people getting their news?
