Winston-Salem 10th most fun, affordable city in U.S.

According to Business Week, that is.

Here’s why I hate stupid non-news stories like this:

  • They use questionable methodology.
  • They use inaccurate or irrelevant or inconsistent data.
  • They’re stupid, non-news stories and I don’t really need any further justification.

That said, I wonder if our ranking would have gone up or down if they’d included Winston-Salem’s actual population (229,617) rather than some random number (33,822) that came from…well…I don’t know where it might have come from.

Remember when reputable publications used to have things like editors and fact checkers? And writers, for that matter?
