Data Science as Storytelling

Is data science storytelling?  Yes, in the sense that everything that is analytical tells a narrative story.  It must fit into some sort of preexisting narrative.  So there has to be interaction with the storyteller, and  the story itself, to make sure the receiver of the narration understands the point. Interaction is key because the conversation is not one way. The receiver of the story needs to understand how it fits into their own decision process.  So in the sense of a story that is only told to make and emphasize a point,  the answer is no.  A good story is more than that.
