Conservatives much more likely
to believe FALSE news than Liberals,
new study finds
(CNN) Conservatives are more likely to believe UNTRUE NEWS REPORTS than liberals are,
researchers reported Wednesday.
It's the latest in a series of studies that show people on the political right tend to
not only be targeted by fake news, but to believe it's correct!
The small but intensive study, conducted by communications specialists
Kelly Garrett and Robert Bond at Ohio State University, shows
more engaging but FALSE stories tended to support beliefs held by conservatives,
while viral news stories that were true tended to support beliefs held by liberals.

showed very similar conclusions.
