Makes it to the New York Times (but only in John Tierney's column):
“Anywhere in the world that social psychologists see women or minorities underrepresented by a factor of two or three, our minds jump to discrimination as the explanation,” said Dr. Haidt, who called himself a longtime liberal turned centrist. “But when we find out that conservatives are underrepresented among us by a factor of more than 100, suddenly everyone finds it quite easy to generate alternate explanations.”
And, of course, it comes from the excellent John Haidt, who is alone in his field as much as Tierney is alone at the Times.
