In one instance, study participants expressed their feelings regarding a soft drink vending machine designed to hike up prices as temperatures rise. People had stronger negative reactions about the fairness of the notion when told that the machine would soon be tested than they did when told that the dispenser had already been put in place a month prior, according to the report.

Reactions to the notion that both would cross the picket line to go back on the air without writers were much harsher when the scenario was discussed as a future development as opposed to something that had already occurred. Overall, those who were told this would happen before it happened were more likely to say they would watch the respective shows less often.

In fact, the past-future dynamic seems to similarly apply to positive developments, as another expe
