At Least Bias Is Bipartisan

April 20, 2017 — Leave a comment

This research paper empirically espouses what I believed to be basic common knowledge which is the tendency for both conservative and liberals to be equally biased. From the study we can deduce that the myth of conservatives being more stooped in bias is largely perpetuated by liberals stranglehold on media and education institutions. Because these institutions are selective in hiring and require peer reviews to submit work they have become the perfect echo chambers for homogeneous ideological beliefs to thrive in this case liberal beliefs. The best solutions in combating scientific bias are to remove the safety blinders by seeking dissimilar fact sources, scrutinizing information from multiple sources, and to refrain from simply accepting fact on the basis that it confirms your bias.
