Honeywell Scares People In Their Own Homes

Author: John Honovich, Published on Dec 04, 2015

ADI's corporate parent is evidently just as good with scare tactics as ADI is.

SSN ran an article on a Honeywell survey, declaring:

"Two-thirds felt unsafe in their own homes."

It seemed absurdly high. Are the overwhelming majority of people really afraid in their own homes?

Losers! They are making people scared.

Sounds as bad as facebook.

Are we supposed to think that Honeywell is protecting the other third?

I was feeling pretty secure in my home before reading this, but now I think I might feel a bit "not so safe".

I do not feel totally safe when I'm trying to climb out of the attic while carrying a Christmas tree. Does Honeywell have a solution for me?

Beware sloppy trade mags who are quick to validate and magnify an advertiser's claims

Giving credit where credit is due, SDM had no problem getting the quote right.

Their quote:

"A surprising fact that emerges from the survey is that more than two-thirds of Americans do not always feel totally safe in their own homes"

So they were surprised that most people 'do not always feel totally safe in their own homes'? One would hope they could understand the extremity and bias of that phrasing.

It's the difference between a biased article and a bad article.

Biased articles can (and should) have their facts straight at least. The better ones then just reach spurious conclusions using faulty logic from a true set of facts. But I am reaching my own conclusions anyway, so their opinion doesn't affect me.

Articles that can't even report factual elements correctly are totally worthless.
