The one in today's paper about the Denver bubble bursting - it's cherry picking and misleading.

I don't think it was extremely misleading. The Denver metro area has indeed cooled but not crashed, and, as the article says, it seems to have made a soft landing. While average and median prices did not go down, growth slowed and some individuals did get burned. Alternatively, some got good properties at great prices.

In my view: The collapse of the IT bubble led to a huge drop in employment, which caused the housing market to slow. If not for the all the well-known factors that have led to huge growth elsewhere, Denver would have seen large drops. The two seem to have balanced leading to a soft-landing. Prices seem to be picking up again, but slowly.
