Reporters’ inability to interpret statistics is ‘sky-rocketing’

Andrew Orloski mangles the extrapolation of figures from a Forrester study to conclude that iTunes sales are ‘collapsing’. Ironically, buried in the piece is this quote: “Forrester analyst Josh Bernoff warned against extrapolating too much from the figures.” I do not care if iTunes sales collapse (except for my friends who are songwriters), however I do care when individuals who likely did everything possible to avoid taking a statistics course in college attempt to cherry pick and mash up unrelated numbers into an argument.
