Did Apollo astronauts land on the moon? The cause and consequence of belief in conspiracy theories

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A two-stage randomized experiment found that exposure to a video promoting the moon landing conspiracy increased belief in the conspiracy. The immediate increase in the belief persisted two weeks after the exposure, and translated into higher levels of distrust in the government. The findings shed light on not only the important role played by media in cultivating belief in conspiracy theories but also the political ramifications of exposure to media messages that promote the theories.
