The Washington Post discusses Netanyahu's silly infographics

A year ago I wrote a short post titled Silly infographics make you look silly, in which I made fun of Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu's cartoony charts and illustrations. Apparently, Netanyahu doesn't read this website —I feel insulted!— as he has done it again, this time on Twitter.

A couple of weeks back, I was interviewed by The Washington Post's Emily Heil about these visuals. She wrote an article based on that conversation. I pointed out that the problem is not just the graphics, which are bad enough, of course, but also their grossly simplistic content.
