Psychology of Belief, Part 3: Confirmation Bias Presentation of the principles of confirmation bias and belief perseverance. The natural human tendency is to seek out only the evidence that supports what we already believe, and to ignore evidence that may debunk our beliefs. We also tend to cling to beliefs even after the original evidence which put it there has been debunked. This is the essence of belief perseverance.

Bias Bingo: How Cognitive Bias Generates Belief This video presents a case study of a typical (in fact, randomly selected) talk from the LDS General Conference. Throughout the talk, we pick out textbook bases of psychological manipulation, and show how they are used to instill ill-founded beliefs into the audience. This demonstration represents how virtually all religious beliefs are generated. Basic human cognitive bias is brazenly exploited, while objective skepticism is frowned upon or ignored. Because the entire process is inherently manipulative and dishonest, such activity only serves as evidence against the integrity of religious beliefs.

You can see proof that the 2001 Obama radio interview has been publicly available online for years by checking out the internet archive of the Chicago Public Radio (91.5 WEBZ, 90.7 WBEQ, 89.5 WBEW) website at You can see the Fox/Rasmussen poll that Megyn Kelly was misreading (Megyn Kelly wrongly claimed a "MAJORITY OF AMERICANS" found Fox News unbiased) at: Megyn Kelly also wrongly claimed a Pew research poll showed 70% of Americans believe journalists are "helping" Obama, though, in fact, that's the number who believe journalists want Obama to win as you can see at In addition, you can see the Center for Media and Public Affairs study Megyn Kelly fumbled in a misquote at Note also, as Bill Burton tried to point out when he was getting drowned out by Megyn Kelly, that positive press coverage of Barack Obama may just reflect the reality of his positive, successful campaign in contrast to John McCain's more negative, less successful campaign. I guess that's what people mean when they say that reality has a liberal bias ;-) To see REAL evidence of Fox News bias, you can now see DOZENS AND DOZENS of examples of Fox News bias on my Fox News bias playlist on ...

Cognitive Bias VideoSong A VideoSong on the various types of cognitive bias for my AP Psychology students. Warning... Attention... Achtung... The grammar police (or grammar gestapo) have detected several typographical errors within the subtitles of the song. I admit several things (1) was careless when making this (2) didn't think it would go viral (3) was unprepared for the grammar gestapo's onslaught of biased attacks and (4) cannot fix, change and reupload this without breaking the incoming links from NYT, Buzzfeed, BoingBoing and a thousand twitter feeds. So because of these things I am going to leave it as is. The song and people seeing it is more important than the typos. I've discussed this with my students and they agree. So shut up. Anyway... I promised my classes that I would play them a song before their test on Monday Dec 21... But we had two snow days in a row so I am trusting that they will watch this in advance in order to study for the test on cognition. Even if only one of the lines from this song get stuck in one kid's head and retrieved during the AP Psych exam I will have done my job! Lyrics: I'm biased because I knew it all along... hindsight bias... I knew it all along. hindsight bias... I knew it all along I'm biased because I putyou in a category which yo may or may not belong... representativeness bias don't stereotype this song I'm biased because of a small detail that throws off the big picture of the thing Anchroing bias see the forest for the trees I'm biased toward ...
Fox News Bias for the Rich? This week, Fox News showed a factually false Republican talking point about the so-called "death tax" and then showed no Democratic response and no correction of the Republican falsehood. Even worse, Fox News actually tried to imply opposition to the inheritance tax within the Obama Administration by using a misinterpretation of the work of an Obama economic advisor that actually contradicts nothing proposed by Obama but does contradict core Republican beliefs exemplified in a February 2009 CPAC speech by apparent de facto head of the Republican Party, Rush Limbaugh. You can see the February 2009 CPAC speech by Rush Limbaugh from which I take short clips for my video using links at The Fox News clips I use in my video come from the program "Happening Now" broadcast April 1, 2009 (not available online).

North Carolina at Maryland, 1984 (Jordan - Len Bias) January 12, 1984 This was a vintage N. Carolina - Maryland matchup featuring players like Jordan, Len Bias, Sam Perkins, Kenny Smith, Brad Daugherty and more. Bias had a great first half scoring 16 points. Finished with 24pts and 4rbs. (24pts was his career-high at that time). Perkins was with 26/12. Jordan scored 21 and he was a monster on the boards with 12 rbds (7 off). He also had 2 blocks and at least 4 steals that I put in the video but could be even more. He came up with all the big points, rebounds and the steal at the end of the game. And of course, he has his famous dunk at the buzzer. There were also 2-3 questionable calls on Jordan plays which I also included. Post game notes & quotes ======================== Two 'Madmen' in Blue Put Md. in Depression By John Feinstein, Washington Post Staff Writer 13 January 1984 The game was over, Michael Jordan and Sam Perkins had seen to that. But Jordan wasn't quite finished. The ball was loose at center court, then he had it with no one blocking his path to the basket. In about two strides he was past the foul line, his 6-foot-6 body uncoiling, the ball seemingly at his knees as he rose above the rim once again. North Carolina's reserves were on their feet in anticipation. "We knew it was coming," Matt Doherty said. He was right. Jordan, sailing through the air, the ball cupped in his hand, twisted his body, brought the ball from far behind his head and, wham! slammed it through the hoop as the buzzer sounded. "I wasn't ...
Pitfalls of Thinking: Confirmation Bias (1/2) Confirmation bias is a tendency to search for, interpret or remember information in a way that confirms preconceptions or working hypotheses. People can reinforce their existing attitudes by selectively collecting new evidence, by interpreting evidence in a biased way or by selectively recalling information from memory. Some psychologists use "confirmation bias" for any of these three cognitive biases, while others restrict the term to selective collection of evidence, using assimilation bias for biased interpretation. I explore the use of confirmation bias in three areas: 1. Alternative health practices 2. Intelligent design creationism 3. HIV/AIDS denialism
Len Bias Highlights Len Bias might have been one of the greatest NBA basketball players ever. But he did not get the chance to play in the NBA. He was drafted in the 1st round 2nd overall in the 1986 NBA by the Boston Celtics. But never got a chance to play in the NBA because he died two days later from a drug OD. He is considered by some sportswriters to be one of the greatest players not to play at the professional level. People describe him as a larger more physical Michael Jordan. He was 6'8'' and weighed 210lb. Len Bias dies on June 19, 1986 at the age of 22. Song: Check Mate By Anno Domini Beats

Complete video at: fora.tv Hoover Institution Senior Fellow Thomas Sowell argues that economic differences between working men and women are not generally due to employer discrimination, as is widely alleged. ----- Peter Robinson speaks with Thomas Sowell about his new book Economic Facts and Fallacies in which Sowell exposes some of the most popular fallacies about economic issues.

BBC Bias: The Gaza Freedom Flotilla CORRECTION: At 4:18 the words should have been "...with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world." Whatever happened on the Mavi Marmara on the morning of May 31st, 2010, the BBC's Panorama team failed to give a balanced view of it in its so-called documentary, Death in the Med. Even the title sounds more like that of a paperback mystery, rather than a serious ***ysis of Israel's worst atrocity since Operation Cast Lead. Documentaries should be truthful and informative and expand our understanding of situations and events; their content should be rigorously checked for errors in statements which are presented as facts and conjecture, and the personal opinions of their writers and presenters should be explicitly identified as such. But Death in the Med failed any test based on those parameters. The BBC's television and radio services reach an audience measured in hundreds of millions, world-wide, but are primarily funded by taxes and license fees paid by the British public; not by Israel or its influential friends. Panorama's biased and often untruthful Treatment of Israel's worst atrocity since Operation Cast Lead should trigger a public enquiry about who is really in charge of one of the most influential broadcasters on the planet.

Speaking to The Advocate, in a Q&A posted on the magazine's website last week, Chamberlain, 76, said, "Despite all the wonderful advances that have been made, it's still dangerous for an actor to talk about that in our extremely misguided culture. Look at what happened in California with Proposition 8," the state amendment in 2008 that banned gay marriage. "Please, don't pretend that we're suddenly all wonderfully, blissfully accepted." Some gay stars do successfully play straight romantic parts - among them Sean Hayes with his Tony Award-nominated male lead in Broadway's "Promises, Promises," and Neil Patrick Harris as skirt-chasing Barney Stinson on the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother." But Chamberlain says, "It's complicated. "There's still a tremendous ...
