It's Bizarro Headline "Explanation" Day

Ah, the wonderful life of a mainstream media journalist where everything is linear, where everything is perfectly explainable to an overeager public using "as" linkers, and where in the name of propaganda and keeping your editor happy, logic and objectivity is also known as "collateral" damage.

For example, take stocks, which can rise due to improving economic data...

 

But also, at the same time, stocks rise due to deteriorating economic data, and bets on more Fed stimulus...

 

But things are even clearer when it comes to gold, which in turn drops on good news as it "supports" the Fed's scaling back...

 

... and also drops on bad news, because in this case, deteriorating economic data (GDP miss) implies less inflation.

 

Sigh.

And now you know how "media" is done.
