Fox News Apologizes For False Approval Ratings Graphic

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump on Thursday shared an inaccurate graphic on Twitter that significantly overstated his overall job approval rating in a new poll and falsely suggested it was “soaring.” Later Thursday morning, Washington correspondent Blake Burman offered an on-air correction on behalf of Fox Business.

“It’s been a quiet start to the day for President Trump, though he did send out a tweet this morning from the Lou Dobbs show last night on Fox Business,” Burman said. “That tweet featured a poll that was not entirely accurate, which Fox Business would like to correct.”

Burman went on the relay the correct numbers. An on-air correction was also offered on Fox News Channel. As of late Thursday morning, Trump’s tweet about the poll remained in his feed.
