17. What
"Obama's Job Approval Drops Below Carter's"

...ridiculous spin.

Carter's approval the previous week was 38 percent. His approval for the relevant period was tied with Clinton at 51 percent. In fact, Carter's approval rating continued to climb, and by the first week of January it was 56 percent compared to Clinton's 42 percent.

Spin: "Clinton's Job Approval Drops Below Carter's"

Obama's approval is at 43 percent today.

Carter's problem was that his approval had dropped to 29 percent prior to that period and after a brief rebound dropped down to 31 percent.
