When in Russia: Watch television. The program I watched on Russia 24 yesterday evening displayed true mastery at disinformation. It is always interesting when you actually cannot believe a single word in either narrative or analysis and there seems to be no interest in any kind of thinking that may in some way go against the previously agreed upon conclusions. When you talk about cognitive bias you always assume a minimum of truth sensititvity. To be biased is to be interested in the truth, but for psychological reasons unable to properly test and criticize conclusions and arguments. Here we have journalists who are deeply ironic in their treatment of “facts” and an audience in the studio that seems to be unable to perceive any hint of the irony.
