" ... rampant abuse of data."

"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation: The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. "

Data are important to understanding everything in politics, from polling to policy. But data are also very easy to abuse and misuse. You can manipulate polls to make them say pretty much anything you want, such as that Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump in Texas or that 7 percent of Texans want a border wall with Oklahoma. 

And then there is the dubious field of fact-checking, which is often politicized. "Our pollsters and our media have spent plenty of time and column inches this year engaged in this sort of inhumane torture"
