Yep. And it gets better. The author of the report the CNN Money article is based on, Carl Howe, seems to have a conflict of interests that is not revealed unless you do some digging. A conflict to the point that I would consider his entire report suspect (at best.)
Mr Howe's blog had an entry that denied that the iPhone 4 had an antenna issue just two days before Apple finally came clean. From it I quote "I haven’t found anyone here at Yankee Group who has reproduced the death grip problem with our iPhone 4s." Considering how easy it is to reproduce the problem, they're either clueless, in denial, or trying to warp reality to cover up the problem.
Oh, and his own personal website has a "Made on a Mac" logo at the bottom. I think it's clear there is a certain degree of bias with this guy, and therefore, the Yankee Group as a whole.
