(also known as: suppressed evidence, fallacy of incomplete evidence, argument by selective observation, argument by half-truth, card stacking, fallacy of exclusion, ignoring the counter evidence, one-sided assessment, slanting, one-sidedness)

Description: When only select evidence is presented in order to persuade the audience to accept a position, and evidence that would go against the position is withheld. The stronger the withheld evidence, the more fallacious the argument.
My political candidate gives 10% of his income to the needy, goes to church every Sunday, and volunteers one day a week at a homeless shelter. Therefore, he is honest and morally straight.

Explanation: What information was left out of the example is that this same candidate gives 10% of his income to needy prostitutes in exchange for services, goes to the bar every Sunday after church (and sometimes before), and only works at the homeless shelter to get clients for his drug dealing business.

This is a prime example of cherry picking.

When you know a girl who is currently in a relationship and you know that relationship won't last so you stay in touch as best you can with the girl in hopes of scoring a rebound when she breaks up. Can be done with multiple girls as well.
Tom: Hey John I noticed you are staying in touch with Chelesea and Brittney lately. You two good friends?

John: Nah dude they are both in relationships which I know they can't keep. As soon as one of them breaks up I'm going in for the kill.

Tom: Fuckin' cherry picking
