Jordan Peterson harassed far worse than Cathy Newman after interview

Article here. Excerpt:

'After she was crushed by Professor Jordan Peterson in a TV debate, Channel 4’s Cathy Newman claimed to be the victim of a violent online hate campaign, yet a study of tweets proves that it was in fact Peterson who received more violent threats as a result of the controversy.

As we highlighted last week, Newman expected to be able to derail Peterson by trotting out the usual “sexist” and “misogynist” cliches, but she was hit with a relentless barrage of common sense and razor sharp logic from Peterson that literally left her speechless at one point.
...
However, the only evidence of such threats appeared to be people on social media calling Newman a “bitch” and an “idiot”.

A subsequent investigation of tweets aimed at both Peterson and Newman following the debate found that Peterson received 30 times more abuse than Newman.

According to the data, just two tweets that could be construed at violent were aimed at Newman, while eight violent tweets were aimed at Peterson and his supporters.

In addition, Newman received zero threats of sexist violence compared to 55 threats of sexist violence aimed at Peterson.'
