This fantastic comic by Matthew Inman’s  on ‘confirmation bias’ (the tendency to search for, interpret, favour, and recall information in a way that confirms one’s preexisting beliefs or hypotheses) and the ‘backfire effect’ (given evidence against their beliefs, people can reject the evidence and believe even more strongly) is particularly relevant in these deeply divided times.
