I am just looking for some relevant graphs that are deceitful, vague, or biased. I need to fine 5 and explain why they are deceiving to general viewers and how they are still some what effective for the providers goal. Its not hard I just cant find graphs that are relevant today and obviously not reliable. It can be any type of graph.

Just look for graphs that show correlation but not causation. A lot of such graph in economics such as graphs of unemployment over inflation (phillip's curve) which has some extraneous cases.

Fox News is well known for using those. You should be able to find several examples right there.
