  7. 2014 was the year of the explainer, for better or worse

    Remember April? I know it was a long, long time ago -- decades in "Internet time." But if you think back, you might remember that journalists couldn't stop talking about "explainers." No fewer than three sites, from media-ordained "wunderkinds" like ex-New York Times data guy Nate Silver and ex-Washington Post politics reporter Ezra Klein, had launched in the span of a few months. Between Silver's FiveThirtyEight, Klein's Vox.com, and the Times' Upshot, there'd never been more high-profile ways to learn "Everything You Need to Know About X." These sites would use data, they would make you feel smart, and, most importantly, they would make you sound smart.
