Who reports?

By Chris Daly

Here is a really worthwhile follow-up to the recent posting about Nate Silver and his study of original reporting. It develops several points that I think are solid and worth further research.

It’s from Nick Baumann of Mother Jones. Like Nate Silver, he is an interested party in all this — trying to make sure that Mother Jones’s original reporting is reckoned properly. Fair enough.

Thanks to my son Gabe for sending it along!
