Hotline's Reid Wilson Beats Greta Van Susteren For Comedy Central Indecision's 'Greatest Political Mind Of Our Time'

Hotline's Reid Wilson recently beat out Fox News' Greta Van Susteren for the title of "Greatest Political Mind Of Our Time," according to Comedy Central's political coverage website.

The two battled it out in Comedy Central’s Indecision Game, a political trivia challenge that pit twenty journalists against each other. Wilson, Hotline's editor-in-chief, picked off competitors from the New York Times, Washington Post, Fox News, NBC News, Roll Call and Salon.

The competition started at the Republican National Convention in August. "Between their journalistic duties, competitors hovered over their smartphones, discreetly answering political trivia in a March Madness-style bracket tournament," a statement from Comedy Central's Indecision said on Wednesday.

Wilson and Van Susteren "fought an intensely tight race to the finish," according to the site. Editorial producer Mary Phillips-Sandy added that Wilson's first-place title was no small achievement. “It takes political genius to transcend the wit and intellectual prowess of Van Susteren,” she said.

For his part, Wilson credited his win to Van Susteren "being nice to me for some reason."
