Attention Fox News: graph the actual data

I am indebted to FlowingData for this great chart from Fox News. The unemployment rate goes down to 8.6% on the label, but somehow this manages to look flat in the chart, and 8.6% is somehow than the 8.8% figure in March.

Fox News, aren’t things bad enough without making them worse? Would we not be better off as a country with the slight unemployment increase that would result from one less news network?
