A study by the Associated Press found that more than one in four Americans (40%) watch television news on the Internet. This figure rose to 71% for the Internet and 69% for the news channels broadcast on cable television.
That’s quite a contrast to a study of television news that found only 7% of Americans 40 watched Internet news. The new study finds that people who do watch internet news can do so for 30 minutes a day, while those who don’t are glued to their televisions for four hours a day.
What does this mean for our society? One would think that the people who do watch internet news are the ones who are most likely to be affected by it because of their propensity for it. Now, it’s important to note that the new study was done on a sample size of only 1,000 people, but that’s still a huge number of people. In a country as large as America, that’s quite a high percentage to have a significant influence on the news.
Unfortunately, the news is often very hard to figure out, particularly when the subjects are on television. In the age of the internet, there are a lot of people who have no problem going to the news stations and having their opinions or thoughts on the news read aloud. This is why it is important to learn what the news is and how it is presented in order to be able to be informed while still being entertained.
Some examples of bad statistics that are presented in the news are: high mortality rates and the lack of a cure for cancer. Both are extremely relevant to people because they are both diseases that occur to healthy people. This is why knowing what these statistics mean is important. Knowing that your local government has a high mortality rate means you have a right to be angry. Knowing that your local government has no cure for cancer means you have a right to be afraid.
One of the major reasons that you may be upset with these statistics is that they are not very accurate. When people are alive, we often give them a very high death rate. Because death is so painful, and because it is almost impossible to fix, people often die very quickly. For instance, the typical American male has a death rate of 33.4 per 100,000. That is far lower than the expected death rate of any other country in the world, including Canada.
So, if you think that American males are generally the most likely to die violently, you are wrong.
There is a strong correlation between violent death and economic status.
This is why many studies show that people who are wealthy die much more quickly than people who are poor. This is because having money makes it easier to get a lot of things that can hasten death. A poor man can still get his family to the doctor, he just ends up dying when his family is forced to rely on some other resource.
This is the most common belief I get from people who claim to want to know the truth. But in reality, there is no such thing as the “truth”. There is no right or wrong, no good or bad, and no ultimate truth. Facts are what make something “true”.
