Shitting on Nate Silver’s blog… There’s no shortage of critics for ESPN’s Nate Silver‘s newly launched blog, FiveThreeEight. Here’s two: one from Think Progress about one of Silver’s writer’s ignoring scientific data, another from The New Republic about the all around stupidity of Nate Silver and all his ideas. In the TNR piece, Leon Wieseltier takes a raw bite out of Silver.

He writes, “He is the hedgehog who knows only one big thing. And his thing may not be as big as he thinks it is.” All in all, all this criticism for Silver is only making me want to read him more to see what the fuss is about. Read here and here.
