Moore wrong on the Swedes

RL calls, but this one's easy. Big Orange is still good for something, since here's a massive take-down of Moore by a writer who's -- gasp! -- actually familiar with Sweden. (Interestingly, this article, useful for the "news cycle" perspective, commits the [what looks to me like the] same "highest rate" error). Via.

That highest rate stuff was always pretty suspicious-sounding. I'm ashamed to admit I didn't look into it further. The original push out of the Swedish stats came from the Assange-as-victim crowd, so it should have set off some serious alarm bells.
