Response to Re: "Confirmation bias" - Is this why people believe garbage?
I don't form a belief out of prejudices, and then try to search for all kinds of propaganda to "prove" my beliefs and biases. That's what I observe you doing, Hop.
I stick to mainstream news sites and use reliable sources such as Factcheck, Snopes, and Truth or Fiction to weed out the lies and propaganda.
Unlike you, I will not convince myself that something is factual unless it's been proven (such as 9-11 being an inside job). I will entertain those thoughts and even share them with others, but will keep an open mind about that conspiracy theory and others.
