Kelly Garrett, Ph.D., teaches Communication at Ohio State University. His research interests include the study of online political communication, online news, and the ways citizens and activists use technologies to shape their engagement with political topics. In a world, with conspiracy theories, fake news, attention-grabbing headlines, and filter bubbles it can be hard to tell what’s truth and what’s not. But have you ever seen a news story and thought to yourself, “I’ll bet that’s true,” before you had all the facts? Most people probably have at some point. Where people differ is in how often they do so. Professor Kelly Garrett shares his research on the ways citizens value intuition vs. value evidence.
