The results of the study were drawn from data gathered from a few hundred people who are part of comScore’s database of 2 million computer users worldwide. The firm, which has permission to monitor the computer users’ online behavior, did not provide a margin of error for the study’s results. [From Most fans paid $0 for Radiohead album - Yahoo! News]
In what world does a “few out of a hundred” translate to “Most”??????
Can someone answer to me how mainstream journalism has survived this long?
Â UPDATE: To be clear to my bloggyÂ brethren,Â I’m not saying a damn thing about Radiohead in this post, but just saying that mainstream journalism is ridiculous and stupid. NO RADIOHEAD COMMENTARY!!!!!! No Comscore commentary either (other than to say sampling theory doesn’t work when it applies to an intrinsically probabalistic sampling pool, ie people)Â
