Given big data and data analytics is the latest technology buzz, I cannot help but show off a bit .
Could you kindly provide proof of your following claim? Now, by asking you this question, it might appear that I have proof of the contrary. No. But I will tell you this. I have a deep understanding of US "South Asia" and its foreign policy in general, and my null hypothesis is as follows:
H0: Status quo, i.e., pentagon/CIA/state dept continue to be in cahoots with TSPA/ISI even aftar 9/11 as has been the case 50+ years prior to 9/11
And you are claiming the alternative hypothesis:
WHOTUS Chief of Staff Armitage. He is the one who dissed the military's expression of readiness to finish off TSP the day on 9/12
Now all I have is a sample to do a hypothesis test. And my sample is US media. You cannot deny, if you have any understanding of US media which you surely do, that US media is the ventriloquist voice of pentagon/CIA/state dept. Be it cable noise network, or Faux Nazi channel, or pee-pee-see, based on their coverage, i.e., equal equal with India, or "TSP is victim of terror", or "the real issue in Af-Pak is India TSP competition", you name it, there is simply no evidence in favor of the alternative hypothesis (HA). In other words, based on US media, which is the only sample I have to do a hypothesis test, I fail to reject H0 in favor of HA, i.e., the p-value, probability of what I am observing (US media report) given H0 is not very low.
