US government funds research on correcting “false beliefs”

By Cindy Harper | Reclaim The Net | December 29, 2022

The US government is funding research on how to fight online “misinformation” by correcting “false beliefs.” The funding is in partnership with fact-checkers.

On July 7, 2021, the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded a project titled, “How False Beliefs Form and How to Correct Them.”

The NSF allocated $444,345 to Lisa Fazio, an Associate Professor of Psychology and Human Development at Vanderbilt University. Since then, the total amount granted to the researcher has reached $506,478, as was first surfaced by a War Room report.

Published on NSF’s website is the grant’s purpose, which states:

“There is currently an urgent need to understand the real-world effects of misinformation on people’s beliefs and how to best correct false beliefs.

“Through a series of laboratory and naturalistic experiments, the project team is examining the effects of repetition on belief in real-world settings and how to more effectively counteract misinformation.

“By examining these basic psychological processes in the primary domain within which they affect daily life – misinformation on social media – this work will have implications for real-world practices aimed at reducing the impact of misinformation.”

The idea is for the research to “inform real-world practices aimed at reducing the impact of misinformation.” The NSF claims that “fact-checking practitioners are consulted to help guide the research, and results will be discussed with them.” However, it does not name the fact-checkers, many of which have already built up notoriety for the often biased way they apply fact-checks.

  1. What’s true for you is true … for you. Not everyone values truth. Their attachments to narratives and agendas supercede any valuing of truth.

    Thus, another effort at bolstering the ‘ministries of truth’.

    National Science Foundation (NSF): https://www.nsf.gov/about/who.jsp Notice the head seems to be Indian. Top Twitter thought controllers were Indians. What is it about India and control of narratives?

    An ethical science foundation would seek to know how people adopt false beliefs and succumb to misinformation.

    By what standard does the science foundation determine what are false beliefs and misinformation? Or, do politics play a key role in this study?

    • For those who are wishing for a Trump-Lake presidential ticket in 2024, it will not happen, and here is why. God is the reason why. I am sure a lot of people see how events in the world are transpiring. God places kings and removes kings for a season. There is an event that is going to happen very very soon that will whisk away believers in Christ. It is called the Blessed Hope, i.e., the rapture of the Body of Christ. Kari Lake is a believer, so she will be part of this event, as well as some other people in the government at all levels. Certain senators and members of the House will also be raptured. There is going to be a major political interruption in our form of government that we have never seen before, and never happen again. The Biden administration will be removed, no more presidential elections will occur. The world is moving towards a one world government, one world monetary system, one world religion. The New World Order leader will come from the United States, but it isn’t Trump, but though he will certainly be an integral part of things. When Joe Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act, all of the sudden we had a winter storm here in American that we haven’t seen in decades. This winter storm killed at least 50 people, and was a warning from God, as well as judgement for Biden signing that piece of legislation. It sealed America in a permanent state of apostasy. God has given the world so many warnings of the direction that mankind was headed, but we didn’t pay attention. I know that this comment will be ridiculed, and that is ok. I am only trying to warn people before it is to late, and the time is fast approaching when world events will catch everyone unaware. Please do not be caught unaware. May God bless and guide you on your journey, and to those who will not come to God, I will say good luck when you face Jesus at the Great White Throne Judgement.

          • It is not just an imaginary idea for believers. God will not be mocked or scoffed, and those that do will unfortunately come face to face with Jesus, and they will kneel before Him at the Great White Throne Judgement, and receive their judgement, eternity in the Lake of Fire. If I were you, I would not scoff or mock Him, become a believer in Christ.

  2. “Surely they can’t be serious”?

    has everyone in the USA got exactly the same opinion? There are always going to be people who have the capacity to sift the “Wheat from the Chaff”. It is impossible for EVERYONE to agree on EVERYTHING, such is human nature.

    The USA is in big trouble, and has been for a long time. Your “1%” have nothing but contempt for you, The American People.

  3. Fact Checkers meet the Mind Benders! Now they can go figure out how to omit “truth in reporting” while dissuading individuals from seeking the truth and accepting Big Brother’s narrative.
    As I told a former Jesuit Priest who was at the time brainwashing Community College students in Michigan back in the 70s, “this will only work if you start using it on young elementary-age children.” He looked at me quizzically as though I had figured out what he was up to.
    Then he nodded.
