Psychotherapist Sari Solden is a pioneer in the field of women with ADHD.

Why Some People Believe Fake News

Why Some People Believe Fake News

Legitimate fake news is a real threat to democracy, says Michigan State University psychology professor Zach Hambrick. And as you’ll hear him explain, there are reasons why some people believe fake news more than others. It’s an eye-opening conversation that reveals how all of us can fall victim to confirmation bias, the importance of fact-checking, and what happens to people’s beliefs when politics are removed from the equation.
