Technically a typo would be misuse or misspelling of a word, juxtaposition of names, dates, ect.. THIS -- is a BANNER LINE that doesn't agree with the primary premise of the story.. SOMEONE not fully brain-engaged is monkeying with the graphics.. And there is no quality control of the crap they throw on air..

Fully expect that raising the Min Wage will fix this problem at ALL the Network News operations...
Do you know for sure that they didn't mix up the numbers that are under the pictures? You know, kind of like a typo?
Interestingly enough, just recently they had put Obama's picture with Romney's name on one of their poll charts recently and had to apologize for it.

This post gets an A+ from hitting all the key elements of a Cali Girl post. Well done. You are on your way to being as arrogant and conceited as she is!

11. The Media Can Legally Lie | Project Censored

FOX appealed the case, and on February 14, 2003 the Florida Second District Court of Appeals unanimously overturned the settlement awarded to Akre. The Court held that Akre’s threat to report the station’s actions to the FCC did not deserve protection under Florida’s whistle blower statute, because Florida’s whistle blower law states that an employer must violate an adopted “law, rule, or regulation.” In a stunningly narrow interpretation of FCC rules, the Florida Appeals court claimed that the FCC policy against falsification of the news does not rise to the level of a “law, rule, or regulation,” it was simply a “policy.” Therefore, it is up to the station whether or not it wants to report honestly.

Interestingly enough, Iowa has never been a good indicator for who is going to be the GOP nominee.

So, you've decided not to link to that study (based on a whole 612 people in NJ) to 'prove' some point about Fox News viewers?

No, because whoever has won Iowa in the past has rarely ever been the GOP nominee.

New Hampshire is a better indicator.
