This is why I hate them. This is why I always introduced my GCSE stats lessons as "lessons in lying". This is why I'm going back to statistics teaching (undergraduate level this time) full time in September.
(Important note: just because I've corrected this doesn't mean I think the correct graph is actually particularly useful; I don't. But at least the information is honestly displayed.)

Thankfully, this is almost certainly a fake. It has the exact same ticker as the misleading Obamacare enrollment graph from a month or two ago.
Compare ticker here with the one from back then:
