I love it when people flagrantly doctor the data to make up graphs.
This is one of the best, since it cherry-picks a small number of
dates to pull highs and lows of a varying list and then draws a straight
line from long before measles vaccination to long after to pretend that
there was a steady decline.

Lovely example:

Now, isn't that an impressive decline from before vaccination?
Only one problem -- a whole bunch of dates are deleted between
1935 and 1947 and between 1947 and 1959. Careful selection can
be sooo useful, no?

Here's the original graph:

Now, isn't it curious that someone would go to this much trouble
to lie about a subject?
