FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver can't be as opinionated now that he's at the Times. “I used to be able to refer to some politician as being overrated or poor," he tells Mallary Jean Tenore. "At The New York Times you have to be more careful about that type of thing. ...I think it took me some time to figure out how you can write with a fair amount of voice and not make your prose too formulaic or dry, but at the same time abide by the Times’ rules and standards.”
