Not earthshaking, but here is an interesting comparison for today

Data 101

US new home sales rebound in June in the Financial Times today and New Home Sales: Worst June on Record at Calculated Risk.

Both headlines are “true”.

Much of the same data sources and figures are used. The differences in information are not as stark as the headlines suggest after reading the articles. CR offers a broader historical context but that context is not left out of the Financial Times. Both appear to offer information for the same purpose, as information (ie. not information from National Realtors Assoc.). Yet I come away with very different feelings about the nature of this news in a casual reading.
