Nate Silver: New York Times “should be turning a much larger profit than it does right now”

Nate Silver, whose super popular politics blog FiveThirtyEight is leaving the New York Times  and becoming a separate site at ESPN, did a podcast with Bill Simmons. Silver calls the NYT “constrained a lot from its business strategy point of view” and says, “[with] all the traffic the Times has right now, it should be turning a much larger profit… I don’t think you should blame the environmental conditions, so much as maybe your sales staff isn’t that good.” You can download the podcast here and read Deadspin’s wrapup here.
