The Faith Filter: How conservatives parse the news

Francesca Tripodi

In Columbia Journalism Review, Chava Gourarie covers key insights from Data & Society Postdoctoral Scholar’s report “Searching for Alternative Facts.”

“‘Scriptural inference’ is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to right-wing interpretive strategies. But Tripodi’s work makes the case that it’s impossible to divorce media literacy from the epistemological and cultural context in which it’s practiced. For Christian conservatives, and for conservatives in general, faith-based notions of what constitutes truth and how to find it deeply influence political discourse, she argues.”
