The school newspaper ran an article stating that chicken was more popular than pork in the East Village.

Kendell thinks the study was biased.

Would you rather eat pork or delicious crispy fried chicken? That’s such a leading question! It encouraged people to pick chicken. I bet the results would have been differet if they had asked about crispy bacon!

Carson thinks the study suffered from selection bias.

One of the survey sites was outside of a mosque?! Muslims don’t even eat pork!

Who’s right? How do you know?
