fuzzy math

The New York Times now reports that the ratio of journalists to delegates is 6:1 [nyt]. Based on 15,000 journalists this implies 2,500 delegates.

But there are actually supposed to be 4,322 (including superdelegates). And don't alternates get to attend? Does this mean that a large proportion of delegates don't attend or that they don't keep a calculator at the Arts desk?
