Drudge accuracy rate

ABC News opines:

Please don’t call and e-mail us for confirmation every time Drudge runs something; his 37.8% accuracy rate and quirky sensibilities (that’s a euphemism) can have a disproportionate impact on the election, if y’all let that happen.

Over a third is pretty good by mainstream media standards. I’d guess that’s a good 5-10 percent higher than ABC would be able to manage. I’m interested, though, to see how they came up with that number. 37.8 sounds like a pretty tricky number for math-challenged liberal reporters.

Odds are that as with the degree of global warming, the acreage of timber being logged in the Amazon and the lethal results of carry laws, it’s just a number someone dreamed up out of thin air.
