There are dozens (or hundreds) of articles have been written about the Fox reaction to the election. There are just as many articles written Nate Silver, his projects, and analysis. But there is really only one that you need to read: Why political journalists can’t stand Nate Silver: The limits of journalistic knowledge:
The other objection political journalists/pundits have to Silver’s process is evident here, too. They don’t just have a problem with how he knows what he knows, but with how he states it, too. Essentially, they are mistaking specificity for certainty. To them, the specificity of Silver’s projections smack of arrogance because, again, their ways of knowing are incapable of producing that kind of specificity. It has to be an overstatement.
