For this article, the task was to create a magazine illustration, using whatever medium, and an additional spread. "Not Hearing the Other Side" by Bill Bishop points out that consumers seek information that supports their own beliefs and biases, instead of seeking from a variety of sources that may challenge their beliefs.
I based my illustration on a study referenced where the subjects were more likely to believe information that came from their preferred news source. For example, a conservative subject was more likely to believe the validity of a political article by FOX than the same exact article by MSNBC. This pattern extended to topics that weren't news or politics related. The same subject was more likely to prefer an article on vacation destinations by FOX than the same article on MSNBC. I expanded on this absurdity in the illustration.
