Fox Chicago - Info Visualization - Funny MathCouldn’t resist posting this awesome display of statistical genius created by our friends at Fox’s affiliate in Chicago.

For those who may not see the gaffe… A pie chart represents 100% of any given sample. The individual slices are meant to show a percentage of the whole – thus their sum should equal 100%, not the 193% indicated by the Fox News chart. Maybe this represents the GOP Candidate percentages found in Foxnewsistan?
