Media Literacy Week 2021

Confirmation Bias:

  • Leads people to reject factual information that doesn't match their own beliefs, which leads to uniformed decision making.
  • Leads people to hold onto false beliefs that may harm another group or individual (i.e. racist or unscientific beliefs).

Filter Bubbles:

  • Can worsen the effects of confirmation bias by isolating social media users from alternative viewpoints and ideas.
  • Increase existing partisan tensions in the government and in society as a whole, making it difficult for people to come together as a group to achieve a common goal.
