Search the internet for a line, circle, or bar graph that either misrepresents the information being portrayed, is confusing, or doesnâ€™t do a good job representing the information.

Discuss the title, legend, labels, colors chosen, axis labels, and general layout including your suggestions that would make it better. Be sure to cite the graphâ€™s source.
