Greta Van Susteren is the Second Greatest Political Mind of our Time

Hotline’s Editor-in-Chief Reid Wilson has been crowned “Greatest Political Mind of our Time” after winning Comedy Central’s Indecision Game smartphone tournament challenge. Wilson came out ahead of Fox News host Greta Van Susteren in the final round of competition.

Wilson and Van Susteren were among 20 of the nation’s leading political reporters and pundits who took part in this year’s competition, which launched at the RNC last month. Competitors hovered over their smartphones, answering political trivia questions in a March Madness-style bracket tournament.

Wilson and Van Susteren beat out opponents from the NBC News, Fox News, Washington Post, Salon, Politico and Roll Call.

“Greta was being nice to me for some reason,” Wilson told Politico’s Patrick Gavin. “It’s a cool app and a fun concept, the closest anyone has come to a political version of Risk in about 50 years.”

A formal award ceremony is expected in the coming days.
