How To Lie With Statistics

I am all for AGW skepticism, but what is wrong about this headline? Anyone?

Statistics actually don't lie if you rough them up a bit and ask them who their friends and relatives are. Then they'll confess pretty quickly.

Instead of "less than" it should read "fewer than."

I see how the headline is misleading when you see that only 6% dismiss consensus. However, I don't accept any article that substitutes "consensus" for "science."
