You should link up the previous article address to a/the page explaining and retracting the erroneous article. Readers shouldn’t have to go looking for an explanation of the mistake like I did. The original link should now admit and explain your error!

I am not a News Corp. fan, but this has seriously damaged your credibility.

Cash interest paid, the line item directly below the tax numbers DCJ cited, was negative as well. Sale proceeds from investments, the next line, was positive. EVERY INDICATION suggested that negative numbers were outflows from the company, positive numbers were inflows to the company.

This is what happens what you have a dedicated ideologue reporting on technical topics. This is a case of serious and gross incompetence and stupidity by DCJ and the responsible editors. There should be terminations– truly an embarrassment.
