The Bob Edwards Show, Miriam Nisbet and Mahzarin R. Banaji, March 14, 2013

The “Freedom of Information Act” was passed when Lyndon Johnson was president. But LBJ had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the signing ceremony. He wasn’t keen on the idea of journalists meddling in the government’s business. Now this “right to know” is considered one fundamental rights of a democracy. We’ll look back on the history of FOIA with Miriam Nisbet, the Director of the Office of Information Services, the department that serves as the FOIA Ombudsman.

Even good people have biases according to psychologists Mahzarin R. Banaji and Anthony G. Greenwald. Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People is their collaborative research into the “unconscious and automatic origins” of biases that affect many parts of American culture. Bob talks to Banaji about her research methods and discoveries. [Broadcast Date: March 14, 2013]
