The mystery of Tucker Carlson - Columbia Journalism Review
If we can figure out how an intelligent writer and conservative can go from writing National Magazine Award–nominated articles to shouting about immigrants on Fox News, perhaps we can understand what is happening to this country, or at least to journalism, in 2018.

Netflix Tells Court It Isn't a Video Service Provider | Hollywood Reporter
A small municipality in Missouri is attempting to use a law designed for facilities based video providers to charge Netflix and Hulu taxes. Although the verbiage of Creve Coeur's (no, I don't know how to pronounce that) ordinance fairly clearly exempts internet-based services, the case reflects a broader trend that is likely to continue impacting Internet companies for the foreseeable future: if you make money, the governments of the world are going to try to regulate and tax you.

The National Hurricane Center predicted Florence’s landfall spot within two miles of reality — Quartz
The National Hurricane Center predicted Florence’s landfall spot within two miles of reality September 14, 2018 at 03:10PM https://ift.tt/2NJstLf

Five days ago, the US National Hurricane Center predicted the spot where Hurricane Florence would make landfall. Their prediction turned out to be within two miles of where Florence actually touched down this morning (Sept 14).

As Weather Channel meteorologist Stephanie Abrams put it, storm-forecast precision “doesn’t get much closer than that.”

Can’t get much closer then that! Great job @NHC_Atlantic ! pic.twitter.com/YQDHJVmQNn

— Stephanie Abrams (@StephanieAbrams) September 14, 2018

Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, at 7:15am on Friday morning.

Hurricanes can be chaotic systems, extremely difficult (and dangerous) to track accurately in real time, let alone predict. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the US agency under which the National Hurricane Center operates, includes an elite team of pilots who fly directly into hurricanes to be able to gather data to understand the intensity and direction of hurricanes.

That makes a two-mile error five days in advance an astounding feat—as Axios points out, the average five-day error is closer to 250 miles.

The forecast gave residents nearly a week of lead time to understand if they should evacuate or not. (Still, many people who were advised to evacuate have chosen to ride out the storm instead.)

That doesn’t mean every hurricane forecast from now on will be as good; but overall, the trend is that the National Hurricane Center is getting better and better at predicting where a storm will make landfall farther and farther in advance:

The National Hurricane Center is getting better and better at predicting where a hurricane will make landfall—represented here in number of nautical miles of distance between predicted spot and reality.
