Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight is taking a minor beating from critics during its launch week.

The stats whiz, famous for correctly predicting the 2012 election for President Obama, launched his new flagship website on Monday. In a mission statement, Silver explained the site was aimed at making data journalism accessible to the general public; many media critics have scrutinized how Silver’s vision will affect the new media landscape. (Silver left the New York Times last July after his contract expired and signed with ESPN.)

So far, the critical response has failed to live up to the hype. Econ-journalists and other techies expressed disappointment in the site’s launch.
