Selective exposure to balanced political information
Scholars, political observers and media pundits have worried that citizens mostly prefer information about politics and public affairs that chimes with their own attitudes, as this can influence the public to make uninformed choices. Most scholarship in this area has focused on the selection and the effects of one-sided political content, while ignoring the consumption and effects of balanced content. In his research, Carlos Brenes Peralta identifies the factors driving balanced exposure, while also looking at its consequences for information processing and attitude polarization.
