My recommended read this weekend comes from the website of the excellent Full Fact organisation. Full Fact usually publishes articles which check the veracity of claims made by politicians or companies, which always make for enlightening reading. But earlier this week, in this post, Owen Spottiswoode looked at the veracity of the claims made in a particularly unpleasant letter to a newspaper, which had been spread widely online.
It’s a brilliant example of the simple truth making prejudice look foolish. It’s like the research behind a Aaron-Sorkin-esque rant. I love it. Bravo.
