Correlation and causation

Browsing through the results of the 2013 Whaleoil Census, I can’t help but have some mischievous fun with it.

These are absolutely not related, but because they are right beside each other, it kind of makes it fun:



Now, I know Pete is looking to sift through the results a little more, but it seems to me that some are quite interesting.  Some are even a little surprising.

11% don’t identify as heterosexual.  Percentage-wise that probably means Whaleoil has a larger GLBT following than your average non-GLBT blog, and it is probably due to the merciless campaign this blog waged on getting Marriage Equality through.

5% of our readers place their trust in Television News.  That has to be a slap in the face for the flagship products that parade as serious TV news in this country.  I wonder how representative that is for the general population?  No, don’t answer that.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
