16. What bearing does the publication rate have, on the real rate of occurrence?
Edited on Sun Dec-04-11 02:31 PM by beevul
Theres a difference between "very common occurrence" and "very commonly publicized".

Your implication, requires that they go hand in hand, which as we all know, is not truth. People VERY commonly eat breathe and defecate, yet such is not publicized. We have elections every 4 years, which are highly publicized, yet they occur at a rate of one every 4 years.

And of course, "very common" is relative.

"very common" in relation to what?

In a nutshell, the only thing google confirms is "highly publicized".
