Fox & Friends "Clarif[ies]" Its Dishonest Unemployment Rate Graphic


From the September 12 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

BRIAN KILMEADE (co-host): Hey, I want to clarify a graphic we used on the show yesterday. We were comparing the real unemployment rate to when Obama took office -- President Obama took office. The real rate includes those working part-time because of economic reasons.

GRETCHEN CARLSON (co-host): So the real unemployment rate now 14.7 percent. The percentage when the president took office in 2009, should have read 14.2 percent, not 7.8 percent.
