Made up, incorrect, or even just slightly off data is MUCH worse than conclusions reached via emotion/subjective interpretation...

the use/reliance on data carries with it an implied sense of objective certainty, which suffocates reasonable doubt/critique.

a small flaw in data collection or interpretation by default creates an exponential error in judgment because of the certainty bias.
