Syracuse reporter James Mulder cracked this story.
As with the Chicago Tribune story cited earlier today, this story ends with a powerhouse quote from one observer:
“You may not think you are being biased, but if you make 10 minor decisions in a row that are all slightly biased, all those little biases add up in the end. It’s an unhealthy situation.”
Hat tip to Pia Christensen for the tip on this.
