How is this for unconscious bias? Especially since algorithms have no conscious

Do they? If you look at the WaPo's coverage of the 2005 riots in France, it's nothing like Attiah's parody:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/11/04/AR2005110400183.html

Can we finally retire the rhetorical device of inventing what coverage/commentary would have been like if X was somehow different? What it really means is "this is what coverage would have been like had it been written by this strawman I just invented to prove a point for which I lack actual evidence."

It sounds like it proves something, but all it does is prove that the author has an imagination in line with their politics.
