Nate Silver, editor-in-chief of FiveThirtyEight, minced no words this afternoon when he suggested that chart-heavy Vox.com “stop stealing people’s charts,” including his. That’s quite an allegation.
Silver also had something to say about the offerings of the @VoxMaps Twitter account.
Take, for example, that graph Vox published showing that “the entire GOP field is either obscure or unpopular” while the rest of the nation suffers from “Hillary fever.”
Vox senior correspondent Timothy B. Lee will be on the lookout.
Is this the end of the kerfuffle for now? Vox has already put together an explainer for how the site aggregates content.
