During a broadcast on Sunday, Florida local news station NBC 2 showed a bar graph meant to illustrate the results of a poll that was conducted to assess public concern over the Zika virus. Well, forget Zika. NBC 2 should probably be more worried about its graph-making department, because this bad boy is all over the place.

The graph's tallest bar supposedly represents the 13% of people polled who said they were "not at all" worried about the virus. Which is odd, because the category with the largest percentage of people, the 34% who said they were "very" worried, is just a short little bar. But…34 is bigger than 13, right? NOT IN FLORIDA, BUDDY. As for the 28% who answered "somewhat," well, screw those guys. They don't even get a bar at all.
