Because they’re not trying to learn they’re trying to complain.

to be honest anyone any study or report can be bought, sold and maniplulated in anyway.

Had a friend that studied philosophy. Claimed to hate empirical data, as it was reducing the beauty of nature to numbers. While I am fine that he has this opinion, that opinion makes it hard to explain to him anything without it becoming a philosophy course on how to think...

Isn't empirical knowledge opposed to scientific knowledge ?

Face of the homeless when you liberated food meant for livestock and gave the homeless animal feed to solve world hunger.

I get what you're saying, just something to keep in mind: You can draw wildly different conclusions from the same set of data depending on the lens and tools you use to analyse it. Some people may not disagree with the numbers themselves, they just disagree with the conclusions you are drawing because a) your conclusion is a non sequitor, at least to them b) they view the same data through a different lens. An evil agenda, willful dishonesty or ulterior motives are honestly pretty rare in average folk.
