Fair Warning - Dirty coal, division, and dodgy charts
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #85 • View online
Hi! A reminder that I’m talking about chatbots at the European Data Journalism Conference in Malaga in July!
Happy Father’s Day to my dad (here’s him and me getting ready to watch Wales v Australia in Cardiff), the biggest Fair Warning fan, my accidental personal bank manager, occasional chauffeur service, fellow nerrrrrd, and friendly cat botherer. He’s great.

Bad chart of the week
I had a corker of a bad chart lined up for this week, but I ruined it by pointing out Italy was in it twice, and he eventually deleted it and then reposted it:
No methodology, no source, no explanation of how the data was calculated or which parties are considered populist. Is it right? Is it wrong? We have no way of knowing and verifying how this data (and the conclusions from it) were arrived at.
Friends don’t let friends use data without clear sources or methodology!
Well, that was an exciting issue. Please enjoy these two cats having a conversation. I have a couple of plans for things to do with Fair Warning and Fair Warning-themed stuff which I think you will like, but I need to a) find the time; b) learn two or three new skills along the way; c) stop being lazy.
Did you know you can support Fair Warning on Patreon? Or you can simply buy me a coffee which is a one-off payment. Every time I have a coffee now I think of Fair Warning and people who have left lovely comments about it. So that’s nice.
Did you enjoy this issue?
