Did The New York Times bury the lede?
The news of the day is about cops shooting blacks and a black man shooting cops in retaliation, but, when the Gray Lady gets its hands a study by a Harvard economics professor, it ledes with the fact that cops are more likely to use non-lethal force on blacks than whites.
The fact that there is no racial bias when it comes to shootings is relegated to the second graf.
“It is the most surprising result of my career,” said Roland G. Fryer Jr., the author of the study and a professor of economics at Harvard, of the facts in the second graf. The study looked into more than 1,000 shootings in 10 police departments.
Also online the lede graphic element is about the use of force, while the shootings graphic is buried far below.
