Gotta Love the Media….Same Data, Two Completely Different Stories

Updated on

I love this ….same data to completely different media stories….FYI…IMO the latter is more accurate


“Davidson” submits;

Story in April implies lined up supertankers sign of oil ‘Glut’ in China with no place to go. Same situation in May story says the demand is there but the facilities are slow to unload. The issue is not lack of demand, but lack of infrastructure.


Always interesting to see the identical information portrayed in opposite ways.
