That is on the US site. But crap like that is to be expected from the Communist News Network.

And what news source do you use that doesn't publish AP articles?

I've never seen the AP do that. Ever. Not that I care that they do, I just found it odd.

FWIW, these articles all have dollar figures that aren't converted:
http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Movies/08/06/box.office.ap/index.html
http://money.cnn.com/2006/08/07/news/international/oil_alaska/index.htm?cnn=yes
http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/TV/08/07/television.vance.reut/index.html
http://www.cnn.com/2006/TRAVEL/07/03/spa.trends/index.html
http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/fun.games/08/04/nintendo.ds.games/index.html

It seems your article is the only one. Why they converted it in a story with no international interest I have no idea... maybe AP has two versions of the article, one for US and one for European countries and CNN accidentally used the wrong one.
