My two cents
The ubiquitous topics of discussion everywhere and always in the moment are the University of Idaho murders and George Santos. What could I possibly say that ' s somehow an original contribution and relevant to the (admittedly blurry) focus of this blog? Let ' s see what I can come up with.Sure, the U of I murders got the OJ treatment in the corporate media partly because the victims were white, young, good looking, and at least modestly privileged as full-time college students. Reporters and editors could identify with them as their younger selves and also their own children. But in fairness, the mystery -- the horrific a...

Memories Can Be Distorted – But Not in the Way That You Think
After the recent hearings regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, the recollection of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came into question. One conservative pundit, Ben Shapiro, suggested that because we had “two believable testimonies and no corroborating evidence,” we should basically dismiss Blasey Ford’s accusation. But in a disjointed opinion piece published on, Shapiro confuses the science of memory, and what it tells us about how the brain forms, keeps, or distorts memories. Let’s walk through his claims and what science actually says about memory. Ben S...

What We Can Learn From the Stanford Prison ‘ Experiment ’
The Stanford Prison ‘Experiment’ is not so much an actual scientific experiment as it is a great piece of fiction, a piece of improvisational drama created by a budding psychologist at the time, Philip Zimbardo. So please, let’s stop calling it an “experiment” and let’s stop teaching it in psychology classes. It’s astounding how many people still believe the experiment to be a credible piece of research based on an objective set of hypotheses and scientific methodologies. As we’ve learned over the past decade, as more evidence has become available — and after another se...

Are Mass Shootings Becoming More Frequent?
Terrible mass shootings like the one at a Parkland, Florida high school are so shocking that it is easy to get the impression that mass shootings are increasingly common.  The number of deaths from mass shootings has been unusually high since 2007, because of five horrific incidents – Las Vegas (58), the Orlando nightclub (49), Virginia Tech (32), Sandy Hook (27), and the Texas First Baptist Church (26).  Statisticians would never try to fabricate a trend from su ch a small sample, even though the untrained eye may want to.Last November, however, aWall Street Journal essay byAri Schulman claimed,It isn ’t your imagin...

Online purchase patterns show left-wingers and right-wingers read very different science books
The partisan consumption of science may contribute to opposing views on important issues By Alex Fradera With political tribalism a feature of our times, perhaps science could act as a unifying force. While faith in politicians and journalists is in the doldrums, surveys in countries like Britain, Canada and the US suggest scientists are among the most respected professions, and citizens are appreciative of the contribution science makes to their lives. As the authors of a recent article in Nature Human Behaviour note, it seems that “we may disagree on emotionally charged social issues, but at least we can agree on scie...

GAO Weighs In On " Countering Violent Extremism "
We examined news coverage from LexisNexis Academic and for all terrorist attacks in the United States between 2011 and 2015. Controlling for target type, fatalities, and being arrested, attacks by Muslim perpetrators received, on average, 449% more coverage than other attacks. Given the disproportionate quantity of news coverage for these attacks, it is no wonder that people are afraid of the Muslim terrorist. More representative media coverage could help to bring public perception of terrorism in line with reality.That incident-media reporting disconnect is matched by another: the notion that Arab/Muslim-Americans...

Deep Racial Divide in Perceptions of Police and Reported Experiences, No Group Is Anti-Cop
In the wake of themistrial of police officer Michael Slager accused of shooting and killing unarmed Walter Scott as he ran away,a new Cato Institute/YouGov survey of public attitudes toward the police finds a 38-point gap between white and black Americans ’ perception that police are too quick to resort to deadly force.Nearly three-fourths (73%) of African Americans and 54% of Hispanics believe the police are “too quick to use deadly force,” compared to 35% of white Americans. Instead, 65% of white Americans believe police resort to lethal force “only when necessary.” When it comes to police tactics overall, bla...
