My pet peeve is the meaningless or fraudulent use of ratios and percentages. Without reporting the baseline the percentage doesn't mean much if the sample size is low. Then there is the media's habit of aggregating insignificant but similar information with the significant event and reporting the whole. Again, no useful information is reported.

Amen! The main stream media has been hoodwinking this country their superfluous significant figures since the 1920's. When will we wake-up as a country and take back those significant figures for the PEOPLE?!
