Fox caught falsifying research about falsifying research

I think this speaks for itself (note that the numbers add up to 120%):

Fox News falsifies data

So the real question is: Did Fox News falsify research to support their own theories on Global Warming? I think it is pretty obvious they did.

Fox News, the news for people who are too stupid to add.

UPDATE: Jon Stewart has a great take on this, with added hilarious commentary about one of the Fox News anchors:

The best part of this is the video of the Fox newsperson reading out the numbers and obviously realizing that they don’t add up. But he just keeps on going, like someone who has forgotten that the truth used to mean something.

UPDATE 2: Fox News claims that they did nothing wrong, saying “We didn’t put on the screen that it added up to 100 percent”. So to recap, they accuse scientists of falsifying data by falsifying data, their own newscaster (Steve Doocy) says on air “so you get 90 — you get a lot of people”; stopping in mid-sentence when he realizes that the math doesn’t add up, but not actually correcting anything. And then they deny any mistake. So Fox News wins the “how hypocritical is it to be hypocritical about your own hypocrisy?” award!

    basically that 26% is the same who did not feel we should invade Iraq. It is the same educated, intelligent people.

    On the other hand, on the question of whether FOX News is misleading its own viewers, 69% say “yes” or “probably yes.” HOWEVER,

    23% say “no”
    23% say “certainly not”
    and about 23% say “hell-” or “heck no”

    So, is FOX truly dishonest? With 69% saying “yes” and another 69% saying “no,” I guess weal never no.
