Media&Multiculturalism_Fall 2017's curator insight, November 4, 2017 2:27 PM
This article talks about studies that show that people have trouble changing their minds about topics even when confronted with facts that their opinions or beliefs are wrong. It also mentions that people have a tendency to reject things that do not align with their views and accept things that do. I think this article is very relevant in today's day and age of Donald Trump. Think back to the problems that faced Facebook during the election campaigns; Facebook got a lot of heat for tailoring their ads towards people's predetermined views (that Facebook knew based on data collection of peoples' clicks, likes, and reposts). There was outrage that by curating ads and such to people's held opinions, people were never able to see the other sides of issues and were constantly reading things that reinforced their views. This article makes me wonder if it would have even mattered if Facebook had shown all its users variety in campaign news, because according to this article, people would have ignored or not believed articles or news that conflicted with what they thought to be true. This also might be one reason why this country is so divided right now; even when people are shown facts that challenge their beliefs, they cling almost tighter to their own pre-conceived notions. The study suggests that reason fails us today because the environment had changed faster than natural selection. This means that in a world where fake news, fake studies, and fake stories all over Twitter, it is almost too hard to sift through it all and create the right perception of everything. Instead of trying to reason, it is easier for people to stick with what they feel is the vest answer to something. It will be curious to see how this difficulty in accepting new facts and truths will evolve in this country, especially in the rest of Donald Trump's presidency.

Media&Multiculturalism_Fall 2017's curator insight, November 20, 2017 4:10 PM
Unfortunately, most of us are aware that we must take what we see and read in the digital media with a grain of salt. I scooped this article because the topic about fake news is something that is constantly occurring all around us. I think it is more crucial that we educate this younger generation about this issue and how they are impacted. I can say for myself that I also use digital media and television news shows as my sources of news. But it is the false content/information that is being promoted which can impact anyone, especially children's perception of the world. This article provides helpful input for improving critical literacy skills that are prime to distinguishing what's fact and what's fiction. The article suggests teachers to bring in fake news into the classroom in order to further develop their students critical literacy skills, along with being able to talk to them about their views and what impacts them. Hopefully by doing so will improve the way the younger generation views our democracy and confidence in our government.
