Confirmation bias occurs when a person interprets a situation according to their own pre-existing beliefs.Confirmation Bias Examples in Real Life
Opinion: We all live in a bubble. Everybody has some kind of bias. Knowing and being aware of them is essential to reading anything. Some people write to provide information about topics they like, and therefore focus, is a bias. Sharing information already readily accessible on the internet, is seen as a recreational pursuit. You have the choice of reading, or not, but you do not have to believe what is written, since the information is meant to be recreational. The reader must confirm its accuracy when it is relevant, but satire, commentary, and opinion, is not a threatening activity since it has existed since civilization began. Reading many different opinions may give you a clear picture of a topic. Public figures are subject to being evaluated, and they know it, and expect it. It would be unfair to criticize in writing , someone who did not want to become a public figure but who may be a victim of events. I would hope that I would not be writing anything negative about someone who is not in the public eye and has strong reasons to keep their affairs private.
