What on Earth is that pie chart doing on the CBSN pot graphic?

Both those cases look like...
Hey Harry, we have to do a visual for _____, drag out stock chart #______ and pretty it up. Doesn't have to make sense as long as it's colorful.

I did figure out what they were trying to say, despite the pie chart.

I was asking why the pie chart was there. A pie chart is for when all options are mutually exclusive, and all options are listed (or the common options, plus "other") and therefore all percentages add to 100%.

The "51%" wedge of pie is considerably less than half of the pie on that graphic.

Agree, the information is there but the pie chart is bonkers.

Here's another undated gem I found.

I've had numerous correspondences with local, state, and federal governments, but this one dazzled me with acronyms.
After 30 years of buying Federal Flood Insurance there was suddenly a five fold increase in the cost. Google gave me the name and address in DC of the acting director. I wrote and told him, nay nay, I was not going to pay to replace million dollar homes, built on barrier islands, every five years.

Joe is an unusual name for a woman. Especially with an E at the end.

Most likely 0 out of a 1000 births when she was born.

I had always assumed if I met someone who said their name was Joe, their real name was Joseph... or Mr Earl.

Letter ends with "feel free to contact Joe. She's great."
