Take our survey

I’m saving this for the next time I talk to my journalism students about surveys. Language Log.

Do you
think surveys asking for people’s opinions about the way things are,
rather than verifiable things they have done, are an even more extreme
form of stupidity, resulting in nonsense like “43% of employees believe
managers may be snooping on them” being passed off as news or even
social science?

Does it sometimes occur to you to just
refuse to do any more surveys until the morons who make them up show
some signs of getting their act together?
