confirmation bias

My negative opinion of Donald Trump started before I knew of his political ambition when he tried to birther Barack. This text will put two phrases in context ONE: confirmation bias TWO: ecco chamber. Confirmation bias is how my hunger to confirm I’ve been right about Trump leads me to read news with a bias against the former president. Ecco chamber is how modern media feeds me the agreeable media I hunger for. This week it was reported by a credible source that Donald Trump ate Eric’s Halloween candy. While this is an example of modern media feeding me what I hunger for I flagged it in my mind. With hundreds of pieces of media hitting me daily I flagged one, and I don’t think congratulations myself is justified.
