GTAC comment: Confirmation bias is the tendency for people to selectively search for and consider information that confirms already held beliefs. People also tend to reject evidence that contradicts their opinions. We always try to avoid falling into the fake news trap and can confirm that most, if not all of the sources we are using (such as the Atlantic Council, the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, the Brookings Institution, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP), the Cato Institute, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the China Africa Project (CAP), the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Diplomat, Eurasia Review, the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI), the Hudson Institute, Human Rights Watch, Jamestown Foundation, the Moscow Times, Nikkei Asia Review, Project Syndicate, RAND Corporation, R Street Institute, Third Way, the Spectator, Wired Magazine and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, or Wilson Center) are rated “high” for factual reporting.
