The NRA is not stupid ...

2012-12-21T15:07:24.059-08:00

These thoughts were passed along to me from a friend's spouse. If he posts them himself I'll link. Till then, I thought it important to share this insight now, early in the debate:"The NRA is not stupid. They are trying to re-frame the gun debate and tangle everyone up in an issue that is ridiculous. "Instead of focusing on "How can we prevent assault weapons from falling into the hands of



Alaska becoming a swing state? Not so fast, Mr. Silver

2012-12-07T18:47:28.418-08:00

I took mild issue with Nate Silver on Twitter yesterday about his article "Alaska: Future Swing State?" I said it was "proof that Silver is better with numbers than analysis."   Ted Cuzillo (@datadoodle) asked what I’d have said if I was his editor and promised him more than 140 characters in reply. Here goes:   First, I’m a longtime Nate Silver fan. We were practicing data-driven



Manifestations of Nate Silver's analytical journalism in the 1980s

2012-11-08T09:09:16.410-08:00

With all the Nate Silver inspired debates about analytical journalism going on, I can't resist referring to the work Richard Mauer, Larry Makinson and others did at the Anchorage Daily News in the 1980s-1990s. Using a Macintosh 512 and Fourth Dimension database software, we computerized all state campaign donation records long before the State of Alaska had done so. We kept databases of sources.



Today we face another crisis too valuable to waste

2012-11-02T12:50:26.651-07:00

A veteran political observer I know is fond of quoting the aphorism, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” It means, among other things, that sometimes only crisis can break through governing gridlock and make things happen. In today’s climate that feels truer than ever. I argued after 9-11 that President Bush in that rare moment of global solidarity with the U.S. had a chance to reshape the



Whatever happened to facts?

2012-10-17T12:14:53.272-07:00

For several years now I've been giving a talk at journalism conferences and classrooms I called "Whatever happened to facts?" I took as my starting point a brilliant headline from The Onion, which said, "One in five Americans now believes Obama is a cactus." Clay Shirky, in characteristically sweeping and insightful style, today weighs in on roughly the same subject with a different (though not



The "postmodern sublime"

2012-07-14T12:12:28.538-07:00

This is taken from a blog post I did in July 2008 at Etaoin Shrdlu:   Utopian or distopian? At the moment, things feel precisely like the condition social theorist Fredric Jameson described as “the postmodern sublime” – the simultaneous apprehension of dread and ecstasy. Will CareerBuilder’s trustworthiness and value-added features be able to compete with the fraud-and-freebies world of
