verinon "Old Ollie, I think what you`re suffering from is bias. Or high blood pressure. One of those."

Probably both, but that doesn`t change the facts. Fox News haters really are a bunch of stupid, gullible f**ktards who will eagerly believe the lamest, most amateurish hoaxes as long as they fit their preconceived template (Bush-Cheney-Limbaugh-Fox-conservatives-Republicans=stupid-greedy-evil-insane). They have not the slightest interest whatsoever in anything that might upset their tiny little world.

Look at Dan Rather. This turd-for-brains STILL claims the forged National Guard papers he used to smear Bush on the eve of the 2004 election are genuine, and that 1970 IBM Selectric typewriters really could do reduced-sized superscript.

I`m telling you, these people are certifiably insane. They are suffering from paranoid delusions. They shouldn`t be allowed outside without staff attendants let alone be allowed to vote.

I`m amazed at all the libtards here who still believe that this is an actual screenshot from the Fox News Channel. You have been given absolute incontrovertible proof that it isn`t, but as usual, facts are wasted on you. You insist on blundering ahead in your willful ignorance displaying your utter stupidity to the world like a badge of honor.

THIS is what an actual screenshot from FNC looks like:

Anyone with a 3-digit IQ can see that this looks nothing like the screenshot in the post.

Liberalism should be classified as a mental disease. As long as you idiots are allowed to vote, we`re f**king DOOMED!

The only thing this post proves is that Fox News haters are retarded.

The Bush administration was warning of an economic collapse because of the home loan situation early in Bushes first term.

Also its funny how early in 2006 so many financial experts where warning everyone about a recession. Then as soon as it comes the republicans jump up and down yelling "They`re in charge now its their fault".

Ignorance is bliss i suppose.

@OldOllie,

"The economy was fine till the Demo_rats took over congress in 2006. That`s when it turned to sh!+."

Your buddies in the GOP got that ball rolling quite some time before democrats received majority.

Unless you are actually stupid enough to believe that this recession was made in less than a year...

Hearing that nonsense from republicans gets real old. You guys flushed the toilet then lost control of congress as it was spinning down the drain and instead of taking some accountability you point the finger at the ones that just got to the party.

ShadowDD13 "old ollie, three things
1) your an idiot"

If you`re going to call someone an idiot, don`t make stupid grammatical errors that prove you, in fact, are the idiot.

"2) all those things you mention about the fox station like the crawl at the bottom of the screen are probably specific to wherever you live, thats not how it is around here, dont be a retard, this is how all fox news is"

Fox News is a CABLE network. It`s the same everywhere in the world! You are probably watching the Fox BROADCAST network which airs the Simpsons, House, etc., and LOCAL news, and you`re too stupid to know the difference.

"3) liberals dont just watch fox, conservatives do too, im a liberal, and i do not watch it, conservatives/republicans are the idiots, thanks for 8 years of bush and actually managing to ruin the greatest nation in the world, jackasses"

The economy was fine till the Demo_rats took over congress in 2006. That`s when it turned to sh!+.

Don`t be so harsh Jimmy, every news network in the world has a slight lean to the right or left.

Problem is that fox is disrespectful and doesn`t pretend to be neutral. In this case, they are just stupid.

In this thread: People pretending any American News station can be taken seriously or reports with even the smallest amount of honesty. The Communist News Network is just as bad as Fox.
Fox News: This just in, Obama seen poisoning water holes in Africa
Communist News Network: This just in, Fox news affiliates seen paying an Obama look-alike to poison watering holes in Africa.
The last time an American News Network could be takes seriously was when America was Fighting the Russians, Germans, and Japanese.

Lionhart2, the intent of the joke is that since the numbers add up to more that 100%, this proves that Fox News, and by association everyone who watches Fox News, i.e., anyone who isn`t a liberal, is a retard.

The problems with the post are:

1) This obviously isn`t the Fox News Channel as claimed. The logo and graphics are all wrong. FNC always has a crawl across the bottom of the screen with their logo at the left end of the crawl. Also, their logo says FOX NEWS, not just FOX.

2) The polling group that FNC uses is called Opinion Dynamics, not Opinions Dynamic.

This is either a small-town Fox broadcast network affiliate with idiot doing the graphics, or the whole thing is a fake. I`m beginning to favor the latter explanation. In either case, whoever made this is probably a liberal and certainly an idiot.

Going back tot he Watermelon/Apple/Peas analogy earlier.

Of the 100 people, how many like watermelon, 66
Of the 100 people, how many like apples, 33
Of the 100 people, how many like peas, 33

Three questions. Three results. It simply should not have been one chart.

For those still confused, the question in this example (asked three times, each time changing the item): Do you like <option>, yes or no?

Thank you pollywog for being smart and showing me things because when obama came on tv i turned to my mommy and i said hey mommy that man is black and running for president is that okay? and she put down the bong and stopped feeling my other mommy long enough to say yes charity its more than okay this man is going to save the world and i said okay and went back to watching spongebob.

But then i accidently turned on fox news and they said that obama was an idiot and that mccain woulda been way better and my mommy dropped her vegan cookies on the floor and said charity you cant believe those biblethumpers lies the planet is being ruined straight people should be burned at the stake and the you ess ess are (i dont know what that is) was the greatest nation ever

But thank you pollywog for showing me that that isnt true and if you dont mind im gonna go back to watching spongebob

While FOX was breaking the ACORN story MSNBC was playing a "cat costumed runway show". I`m not even kidding. It`s almost like anything that makes the Obama administration look bad is ignored completely by the mainstream. Ridiculous. Reality is setting in, Obama is not a demi-god as many liberals proclaimed in the first weeks of his election. I remember people actually putting together an organization to plead to have his likeness added to Mount Rushmore during his first month. Wow, what a bunch of absolutely insane people. Oh well, at least FOX has higher ratings than all the other state owned media orgs combined. That says something.

Just read the comments..... Oldie its not nice to just pass the buck and not take any blame. In my opinion when mistakes happen it is usually a joint effort that leads up to the problem. for instance in this case. both parties fudged up. tech dept. gave bad info and art depart chose wrong way to display and whoever mods what goes on air is a fu*kin idiot he didn`t catch it. in fact their all idiots they didn`t see anything wrong. But one thing does stay the same its always someone else`s fault.

One of the reasons graphic departments assert to do all graphics is because if something goes wrong i.e. when someone outside the department posts or displays something, The graphic department get the blame. I worked in a graphics shop where this happened a few times and we caught a sh&storm of flack from upper management thinking we were the culprits. As for someone outside the department doing a little minor tweaking as you suggested, I don`t see an issue with that.

yellowsquare, cellopaddy, and npdarren, obviously none of you has ever worked in an organization with a graphics art department. I have. First, they always assert their right to do ALL the graphics and art work in an organization. I worked as a technical editor, and I was absolutely forbidden even to change the width of a column in a table by a single pixel to keep a word from wrapping and creating a new line -- that was exclusively the job of the graphics department. I was actually threatened with firing for doing just that. Also, I can tell you that every single person in that department was a self-identified progressive, liberal, socialist, or communist.

And finally, for the last time, THIS IS NOT EVEN THE FOX NEWS CHANNEL! IT`S A LOCAL FOX BROADCAST AFFILIATE! F**king idiot liberals!

Although it`s astronomically likely that this is incredibly retarded, we can`t rule out the possibility that LOADS of people backed more than one candidate, allowing for an overlap of the percentages. But they`re probably just idiots.

How can you think this is an art error? Making a pie chart doesn`t require going to art school, or even knowing how to design sh*t. People make pie charts in math, especially in statistics. Therefore, your ignorant attack against liberals is just as bad as the attack whoever posted this link is making against conservatives. What is shown in this picture doesn`t reflect at all the nature of either side (just shows how stupid a handful of people on both sides are).

This isn`t an "art" error, this is a statistical error. And if it`s not a statistical error, like some here have suggested, then it`s a confusing representation of the data.

Anyway, I`m pretty sure art school admits you even if you hold conservative views, Ollie. Sweeping generalizations like that make your otherwise-relevant argument sound sadly ignorant.

First, the logo and screen layout are NOT those of the Fox News Channel. This is a local Fox broadcast network affiliate. There is no more connection between FNC and this station than there is between MSNBC and a local NBC affiliate. If you didn`t get this, you are a bigger idiot than you would like to think the people at FNC are.

That being said, this is not necessarily a problem with the news department; it`s more likely problem with the art department which, I would bet, is populated by a bunch of idiot liberals. Conservatives don`t usually go to art school, so the only people available to hire for the job are liberals who decided to display the data in a pie chart.

It would take someone ignorant and sheepish enough to watch fox news to think that the only people against the channel are liberals, exactly how fox news would tell you to think.

Dear fox news watchers\people who don`t know how to think for themselves, here is a tip: Fox news is not a conservative thing, it`s an idiot thing.

lukas and quackor,

no they are not correct, because there can not be more than 100%.

if you take 3 people, one votes for watermelon, the second for apples and the third for watermelon and peas, then the total percentage does not add up to 66%, 33%, 33%, respectively. The total would add up to 50%, 25%, 25%, respectively, because there would have been 4 total votes, not 3.

you are right though, math can be confusing. go read a book.

and as for fox news (lol), this chart is completely incorrect, the overlapping votes should be shaded to show the overlapping votes. they have failed again, just as they have since day one.

I think the pie chart is confusing people.

Let`s say they asked 100 people:

70% of people asked would back Palin
63% of people asked would back Huckabee
60% of people asked would back Romney

People were obviously asked three seperate questions. These are 3 seperate statistics, wrongly put in one pie chart. Still stupid of FOX news, but not AS retarded as you may have thought.

This is actually perfectly fine. I use pie charts to demonstrate comparisons, even if those graphs add up to over 100%.

For example in the UAE, the Mobile Penetration rate is over 150%. I could quite happily make a graph saying 75% of people have an Etisalat mobile, and 75% have a Du Mobile, because some people (many in places like the UAE, where telephone numbers are a status symbol) have more than one, and many have 3 or more.

You`re completely correct Quackor, anyone who has said they are backing more than one person could make the percenages over 100%. It does seem a bit weird to represent it as a pie chart though.

Dont want to burst your bubble here, but that graph is correct, it is just not very correct to represent it in a pie chart.

Take 3 people, the first votes for watermelons, the second for apples and the third for watermelons and peas. So you have:
66% watermelons
33% apples
33% peas

Math can be confusing at times.
