Thomsen recently published a multi-study experimental paper on ideologically biased, or discriminatory, applications and sanctions of freedom of speech, demonstrating not only that people across the political spectrum are more prone to discriminate against the freedom of utterances with which they disagree ideologically, but also that people believe they are unbiased and seek to adjust for any such bias as soon as they may reveal themselves.
