Visual Trumpery- How to Fight Against Fake Data & Visualizations

The English word “trumpery” means worthless nonsense, something that is showy and deceitful at the same time. Trumpery can occur in text, verbally, or visually. This nonpartisan talk focuses on the visual, examining misleading charts, graphs, and data maps designed by individuals and organizations from all over the political spectrum.These examples will be used to instill a solid understanding of “graphicacy,” a term used to refer to visual literacy. Cairo believes a literate, numerate, and graphicate citizenry is the best antidote for a world where, in his view, trumpery runs rampant.
