Fox News: 120% have opinion on climate research

Fox News presented a Rasmussen poll that showed 120% of Americans have an opinion about whether scientists falsified climate research data. Which is a lot. And ... not really possible. See pic:

Seems the network, while reporting a poll, added the original "very likely" (35%) and the "somewhat likely" (24%) results and used that as the "somewhat likely" number.

Liberal bloggers are pointing to this as an example of Fox News deliberately distorting the poll. But hey, anybody can make a mistake when presenting research data, doesn't mean it's intended to support their own theories ... right?
