Chart junk at its finest: Fox on ACA
I rarely give MediaMatters a first look, much less a second one.

I know, I know.

I feel like Rodney King: can’t we all agree that a misrepresentation like this is just wrong?
They’re bad for democracy, they’re bad for civility, they’re bad for decision-making.
With this chart, the FOX show “America’s Newsroom” lied.
I swear, science and math are not Brussels sprouts or <insert hated food here>.
