CONFIRMATION BIAS

 

con·fir·ma·tion bi·as

noun

the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one's existing beliefs or theories.

 

This was based of a BBC article detailing the rise of people relying on social media as a news aggregate. Because of this there has been an up tick in fake news sites that play on confirmation bias for views.
