As we see the price of gold and silver dragged lower once again in our Hostage Markets; a reality-check is badly needed – since we certainly get no reality from the Corporate media. However, while the mainstream media provides no “reality”, it does provide consistency.
As any knowledgeable reader already knows; gold (and silver) is both a commodity and a “monetary metal” (i.e. real money). With respect to the perverse reporting of the Corporate media; the pattern has been unequivocal. Whenever it has some bearish fiction to distribute about the monetary fundamentals of gold; it treats gold as a monetary metal. And whenever it has some bearish fiction to distribute about the commodity fundamentals of the gold market; it treats gold as a commodity.
