"Because Tufte... can look back and show they were wrong, and then point to discrepancies in their presentation, does not mean the fault lies in the presentation, nor in the tool used to present it." Don Norman regarding presentations-
"There is no sign of engineering discipline here, except in the back-up slides." Edward Tufte on NASA presentations-

"The slides do not display a sense of engineering intelligence or discipline. In the main report, there is a persistent habit of dequantification and a general absence of units of measurement. The back-up slides are more quantified and at a higher intellectual level. Several of the slides look like they were produced by a designer lacking in scientific training."
