@barefootstache hm. It's complicated by the fact that they hand picked items to survey, and what did they hand pick? 🤣
Two-thirds (65%) of the high-engagement true statements were characterized as benefiting liberals, while only 10% of accurate claims were considered beneficial to conservatives. On the other side, 46% of falsehoods were rated as advantageous to conservatives, compared to 23% of false claims benefiting liberals.
Looks like a pretty stacked deck to me. Looks from this like the survey ended up : 7 out of 8 of these true statements align with liberal talking points. Meanwhile 5 of these 7 false things are false and align with with conservative taking points. We're shocked, shocked I tell you that when surveyed people agree with stacked headlines that align with their preexisting bias.
