I am not sure how much I would give credit to the idea that the neural network 'gets' anything as it is written in the article.

> Yet, the network knows that the Romney Camp criticizing the president is a plausible headline.

I am pretty certain that the network does not know any of this and instead just happens to be understood by us as making sense.

Life Is About A Giant White House Close To A Body In These Red Carpet Looks From Prince William’s Epic ‘Dinner With Johnny'

from the article would be a good counterexample of the neural network "getting" anything.

If you're an algorithm "White House", "Prince William" and "Dinner With Johnny" is to "Red Carpet" as "Romney" is to "Camp" and "Bad President".
