When reading a news site, I had to answer a survey before I could see an article. The survey asked some questions about government infrastructure funding in Ontario. An example question:

Biased survey on Ontario infrastructure.jpg

"How does it make you feel when you think about the monetary investment that the Ontario government makes towards new infrastructure projects?"

- Skeptical
- Surprised
- Angry
- Distrustful
- Disgusted
- Confused
- Neutral

Looks like there is going to be a biased press release coming out attacking Infrastructure Ontario, with "facts" pulled from this survey. I wrote to Infrastructure Ontario and sent them a screenshot.

Well done on letting them know.

Good on you for reporting that biased survey to IO. Well done.

(Sorry for previous comment. Someone has broken my friends page and it is hard to tell one post from another right now.)
Good job. Between the fake news sites and clickbait and post-truth news or whatever they're calling it, we're going to all be a soup of outrage swirling down the garbage disposal... Gotta crush that as soon as we can.
