75 or 75%...and the WAIS Effect (from Gary Moore) (John Eipper, USA, 08/08/19 3:52 am)

Gary Moore writes:

Great catch by our moderator pinpointing that "75 percent of countries" is a headline fudge of "75 countries," making a large propaganda difference, though barely visible superficially (when I looked at the two linked versions we now have, I missed the switch).

At any rate the use of the particular magazine quoted, In These Times, would in itself seem a flag of sorts. Yet another headline from In These Times shows how far left it can roam: "Elizabeth Warren is no progressive..." Media like these can be useful for those determined to see what they want to see, as the reading eye leaps like Patrick Mears's (Aug 7) WAIS Effect moment, when a more substantial wonderland (Novello's music, opened by Ed Jajko Aug 7 and before) drew the eye to the real secret: "Perchance to dream."

JE comments:  I presume our UK colleagues are aware of the Ivors, an award from the British Academy of Songwriters.  Novello was possibly the first titan of 20th-century British pop music--although we could argue for hours about this honor.

Here's In These Times on Elizabeth Warren.  Scroll to the end of the second paragraph, and the Phoenix rises again:  "US commandos deployed to 75% of the countries."
