sometimes cause and effect is unreasonable.

Yet.. perhaps a bit more of the blame would need to go to the *producer* of the bad data, depending on the maturity of the processor or the outputer.

At higher levels of maturity or expertise, more and more of the “blame” could go to the processing/outputting system itself, as, “it should’ve known better” as it were.

Yes, and while the domino effect is often real [the culprit could be a little batch file nobody notices that parses data slightly wrong, or something akin to a rounding error] OR it could be something nearly impossible to fully determine – timing issues with different databases sharing information but updating at different times]… do you blame the computer clocks and the Network Time Protocol?
