“On July 7, 2021, the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded a project titled, ‘How False Beliefs Form and How to Correct Them.’

The NSF allocated $444,345 to Lisa Fazio, an Associate Professor of Psychology and Human Development at Vanderbilt University. Since then, the total amount granted to the researcher has reached $506,478, as was first surfaced by a War Room report…

The idea is for the research to ‘inform real-world practices aimed at reducing the impact of misinformation.’ The NSF claims that ‘fact-checking practitioners are consulted to help guide the research, and results will be discussed with them.’”
