Lazy Journalism, Microsoft Hit Job, or Fluked Math Class?

The Android spin machine is in high gear. The open source crowd is in take no prisoners mode.

I'm no mathematician, but how is 3.5% market share nearing 7.9%?

I really don't want to take sides but I do believe that accurate journalism would be nice.

No doubt that Android is doing well and Windows Mobile is hurting, but this deserves a Monday Night Football "C'mon Man!".

In fact, it was a study that ranks confidence and integrity in institutions (opposite of corruption) and Canada was in 8th out of 180).

So in fact the headline was 180 degrees or 100% wrong. They did take it down after a few minutes though.
