The Most Deceptive Graph You’ve Ever Seen. Courtesy Of Fox News

Deception, inaccuracy, misrepresentation, dishonesty, distortion, vilification, fabrication, etc. All of those words have something in common: They’re all synonyms for “lie.” They also describe the following graph shown by Fox to greatly distort the effect the expiration of Bush-era tax cuts would have on the wealthy class.


Notice that the scale of the graph only goes from 34% to 42%, with the true difference being a modest 4.6% tax increase with the expiration taking place. Once again, the mouthpieces at Fox attempt to use the ignorant right-wing sheep to increase revenue for the super-rich.

  • Pretty deceptive, but not the worst I’ve seen. I’m old enough to remember when Reagan introduced (or perhaps “popularized” or “legitimized”) un-facts and the use of deliberately misleading info-graphics into our political dildo-logue, and ever since then Conservatives have been waging vendetta against facts with a passion not seen since the Scopes Monkey Trial.
