Shorter Jed Perl: Ezra Klein and Nate Silver are killing American art.

As Roy says, the essay is not merely pretentiously incoherent but is written it a level of abstraction so high that it renders serious engagement impossible.   At least the right-wing version of this cliched screed uses some extraordinarily dated concrete examples — “Piss Christ!” “2 Live Crew!” “The woman with the chocolate syrup!” —   which is a minor source of amusement as well as a major source of self-refutation.  This is just many, many words saying nothing.  And it leaves Aaron Sorkin on the table!  Come back Joseph Epstein, all is forgiven.
