What are the implications for developing effective policy? When I see political postings on Facebook, there is clear support for Mr. Vedantam's points. My friends on both the left and the right pick through all of the data now available through the internet and find only things that support their prejudices.

I agree. People on the right accuse the left of confirmation bias, people on the left accuse the right of confirmation bias, but in reality we all do it. Makes you wonder who you can believe, if at all.
