Conan O’Brien Interviews Statistician Nate Silver


Since Nate Silver has announced his move from the New York Times to Disney aka ESPN and ABC I wanted to post an interview with Silver that wasn’t of the antagonistic “aren’t you lucky” or the self involved media claiming “the real winner of the election was Nate Silver” sort. Conan O’brien did a good job of that when he talked with Silver during his “Serious Jibber Jabber” web series.

Nate Silver and other (even right wing) statisticians/modelers who use sound methodologies and helped those of us who paid attention have some empirical cocoon to avoid the hysteria willingly wrapped around every sound bite, non scandal or spin in long American Presidential election seasons.
