    Nate did yeomans’s work in the 2008. His site was pretty much must-read. Definitly deserving. I hope the Grey Lady doesn’t try to hide him behind a pay wall or he’ll be smothered.Report

    Yup 538 is an officially great site. It appears he has a sweet deal. He still has his site and ultimate ownership of what he produces but the NYT will bring him a lot more attention and give the NYT some of its luster back.Report

    It’s good to hear that a few good bloggers are going to reach a larger audience. Good luck with the T/S deal.

    Now, if say Vanity Fair wants to buy out the League, I say we hold out until we can get Annie Leibowitz to do a photo shoot of the writers here.Report
