"did anyone here invite anyone at the "Columbia Heart Beat" to explain what they were doing?" Good idea! Why don't you ask Mr. Martin to comment here?

Step off, Amy S. I criticized Martin's misleading graph, not his character. You seem to be the one getting personal here.

Amy S.: My "personal animus" extends only to Mr. Martin's shoddy reporting and (in this case) deliberately misleading his readers with a poorly constructed chart, which leaves out data that doesn't support his argument. Martin claims to be a journalist. If he really is, doesn't he owe his readers some semblance of the truth? Otherwise, this is really just an opinion piece, and no better than the egregious examples of chart manipulation found on (say) Fox News. It would have been no more difficult for Martin to create an accurate chart. He chose not to. It's interesting that you consider me "obsessed" because I pointed out Martin's lie. So, you're fine with unethical journalism, but people who say "hey, wait a minute!" are obsessed? Uh, ok....

Regarding your PS: I'm almost certain the time axis was distorted deliberately to omit years where there was a decrease in cash. If you plot out all the annual values, listed at the bottom of the article, it's clear that this chart only shows the local maxima, and only those that form a steadily rising line. The author of this article (and publisher of the Heartbeat website) is a "citizen journalist" who frequently uses hyperbole and cherry-picked data to grind his axes. This is just one egregious example. Keep up the good work!
