|Nerds … I was one of them|
This story on the AtlanticWire.com discusses the ongoing feud between math geeks and political pundits.
We talked about this Tuesday morning on Brewing, specifically Politico columnist Dylan Byers’ confusion between facts and what he felt was correct.
The AtlanticWire.com story (written by Elspeth Reeve) seems to get to the heart of the matter thusly:
“So what seems like a debate over the value of Silver’s work is really a debate over the value of Politico.”
As I said Tuesday, I love Politico. But until I’m proven wrong, I will continue to trust Silver’s methodology. We’ll find out in less than a week.
