[BV] CNN’s Attempt to Visualize Ad Spending

Peter Fortunato, Editor

According to CNN, 194 million is only slightly smaller than 418 million. In reality, 418 is more than twice the size of 194. Do better with your graphics, CNN.

The story about Mike Bloomberg’s enormous spending capabilities, along with the money he’s already spent, is lost here.

Due to Hanlon’s razor, I cannot assume malice on CNN’s part for minimizing Bloomberg’s oligarchic status. But it really does appear as if that is what CNN is trying to do.
