  • Wilson said Brown was like “Hulk Hogan” & a “demon.” Research says A Superhumanization Bias in Whites towards Blacks,
  • That “the revolution won’t be tweeted” hypothesis isn’t holding up so well.
  • TV news bias often less about left vs right than eye candy vs substance. Fires look good, nonviolent protests across country, not so much.
