Submission + - Accountability of corporate media backed bloggers.

An anonymous reader writes: The problem with Nate Silver's nice electoral college statistics on the 538 is that they are objectively wrong. The integral of probabilities in his "Electoral Vote Distribution" histogram is not 100%, and his "Chance of Winning" totals don't match the state-by-state probabilities he publishes. Nate's email isn't public, a letter to the editors at NYT has gone ignored for a week, and the problems persist, which raises the question: who is ultimately responsible for mistakes on corporate media backed blogs, the editors or the bloggers?
