The curious Fox illustration, which aired Monday during "America's Newsroom," follows the Obama administration's Thursday announcement that 6 million had enrolled in private coverage through the law. The Congressional Budget Office had originally estimated about 7 million people would sign up for coverage this year.

But Fox also neglected to mention that CBO had actually revised its enrollment projection to 6 million in the wake of HealthCare.gov's disastrous launch.
