I thought it had something to do with the fact that if you took the first letter of each one it would be spies and the first letter of the second word is mated

so spies mated

Thank you all for your comments and taking the time to visit and vote. I've been on Braingle just a month so I know I'm making a lot of mistakes you old vets have already seen. I'll improve, though ... I hope !!

I also found spies mated but couldn't connect it to bad news. The answer made complete sense when I read it. Too, bad I didn't guess the answer!
