CNN taking the cold war a little too seriously

Or are they?

This screenshot from their site seems to show them going a little hay-wire with the bar charts – how can the US have a larger bar than the USSR when they don’t have as many medals? Besides, who works out the positions based on TOTAL number of medals?

This bar chart seems to be wrong for 1976 and 1988, but not other years. Probably a bug with the CNN website. But amusing anyway.
