More vs Most

Nel numero di gennaio 2014, nell’articolo A symbol of New York, Lester Holt dice: One of the more popular places is a place called Eataly… Non sarebbe stato piu’ corretto dire one of the most popular…? Grazie. Armando

No. “More popular” is actually better in this case. It’s more a question of tone: by saying “more popular” he is expressing a moderate opinion, whereas “most popular” would sound like a statement of fact that would need to be supported with statistics.
