Skip to comments.Why is today the first time I learned that 538 is owned by Disney?

I mean, seriously, it is owned by "Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International (The Walt Disney Company)"... the same company that pretends George Stephanopolous is a valid news source... how do more people not know this?
As Wayne Gretzky once said (about the NJ Devils), 538 is a Mickey Mouse organization.
Why is that a surprise? They’re *the* pollsters of MSLSD!
Everything is owned by Disney.
I think CNN or NY Times owned till 2015. Oddly it morphed into doing sports and politics side by side so ESPN bought the site and they are owned by Disney.
What is 538?
Good with sports. Absolutely bias liberal trash with everything else (er politics)
I guess its not. But the degree to which many hold it out as some brilliant neutral source is a joke and demonstrably false
A site run by leftist Nate Silver that the media likes to hold out as some amazing source because he accurately predicted the 2012 presidential race for every state. But it is just another left wing propaganda site. They said Trump had a minimal chance of winning in 2016 and are giving him a minimal one now as well.
Guarantee Disney has better data scientists and statisticians than 538. I don’t see 538 adding anything to Disney’s portfolio.....or any other organization. I find them unreliable and too biased to trust their methods.
Thanks for the info.
Disney is evil bump.
If I remember correctly, mainstream media companies like to refer to polls (surveys) at the 538 site.
And they own ABC.
