  1. The Global Justice Now Infographic was difficult to track down to discover its sources. If you do “Infographics I Liked”, please give links. Their Facebook page has the Infographic not too far down (at the moment), but I don’t know how to link reliably to posts in FB. One of the comments there links to a factcheck by the Mirror,, which might perhaps introduce some of its own biases but at least it cites some sources. Infographics can set themselves up for counterproductive dispute unless they are careful about their sources.
