For me the best thing about the media coverage of the 2008 election is the work that Nate Silver did. Also anyone who comes up with PECOTA is simply a genius...
Nate Silver owned this election on the polling front: one young guy with a background in baseball stats beat out the mainstream media in a couple of months. And he beat out the old web: I mean if you consider the total joke of Drudge's recent coverage and compare it with Silver's, you realize that the web is a brutal competitive medium where only the best survive - and they are only as good as their last few posts.
