  • Selective Exposure to Misinformation: Evidence from the consumption of fake news during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign
    • Though some warnings about online “echo chambers” have been hyperbolic, tendencies toward selective exposure to politically congenial content are likely to extend to misinformation and to be exacerbated by social media platforms. We test this prediction using data on the factually dubious articles known as “fake news.” Using unique data combining survey responses with individual-level web trac histories, we estimate that approximately 1 in 4 Americans visited a fake news website from October 7-November 14, 2016. Trump supporters visited the most fake news websites, which were overwhelmingly pro-Trump. However, fake news consumption was heavily concentrated among a small group — almost 6 in 10 visits to fake news websites came from the 10% of people with the most conservative online information diets. We also find that Facebook was a key vector of exposure to fake news and that fact-checks of fake news almost never reached its consumers.

In the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run elevated to connect. This error may also indicate that the docker daemon is not running.

  • Write up a 250 word Notice of Intent
    • Notice of Intent (NOI) to Propose Material in a NOI is confidential and will be used for NASA planning purposes only, unless otherwise stated in the FA. An NOI is submitted by logging into NSPIRES at http://nspires.nasaprs.com. Space is provided for the applicant to provide, at a minimum, the following information, although additional special requests may also be indicated:
      • A Short Title of the anticipated proposal (50 characters or less); 7
      • A Full Title of the anticipated proposal (which should not exceed 254 characters and is of a nature that is understandable by a scientifically trained person);
      • A brief description of the primary research area(s) and objective(s) of the anticipated work (the information in this item does not constrain in any way the proposal summary that must be submitted with the final proposal); and
      • The names of any Co-Is and/or Collaborators as known at the time the NOI is submitted. In order to enter these names those team members must have previously accessed and registered in NSPIRES themselves; a Principle Investigator (PI) cannot do this for them.
