Spot The Contradiction

Recommended Posts

On 27th April 2006, the Guardian ran a piece with the headine:

House prices continue to cool

http://money.guardian.co.uk/houseprices/st...1762439,00.html

And on 16th May 2006:

House prices continue to rise

http://money.guardian.co.uk/houseprices/st...1775872,00.html

Good consistent journalism there, then!

:P

Sorry to spoil the party guys, but to be fair to the newspaper. They report on YESTERDAY/TODAY and TOMMORROW.

They do not base articles on TRENDS, just the press releases for that period.

If we were to be critical, I could remark on all papers that said Stevie G had ALREADY SIGNED for Chelsea.

If you look at headlines and re-assess them a few weeks later - its quite embarrassing how many of them are WAYYYYYY of the mark!

Yes, but house price trends are meant to take place over several years. Unless house prices really did about turn within three weeks and establish a new trend which then 'continued', the paper has some facts awry!
