I have been Blogging about the drip drip of Catholic propaganda on the BBC News website. Someone has had a word in their ear and today they give front page space to the results of a British Humanist Association survey. Hoorah!
The BHA asked two different questions:
Do you have a religion?
Most people answer "Yes" to this
Are you religious?
Most people answer "No" to this. In fact, 65% in England and Wales say "No" and 56% in Scotland
But here's the BBCs headline for this story, filed by John McManus:
"Many people 'are not religious' suggests survey"
Surely some mistake? 65% and 56% - isn't that what most people call "Most"?
Over to the Opus Dei desk at the BBC for the answer ....
Postscript 10.20am Monday: An instant response! The word "Many" has been changed to "Two thirds"!
