Abstract

The following errors have been corrected in the published article. The introduction originally stated: From over 8847 million visits, we analyze 10 million visits from the month before the experiments and use these data in conjunction with a comprehensive list of news websites and machine learning algorithms to construct the measures of (ideologically like-minded) prior news consumption (see SI B.2). This has been amended to the following to state the correct number of visits: From over 88 million visits, we analyze 10 million visits from the month before the experiments and use these data in conjunction with a comprehensive list of news websites and machine learning algorithms to construct the measures of (ideologically like-minded) prior news consumption (see SI B.2). The acknowledgements mistakenly included reference to Pablo Barbera and Andy Guess as having provided writing assistance. The original text read: The author(s) gratefully acknowledge the support of the European Research Council, “Europeans exposed to dissimilar views in the media: investigating backfire effects,” Proposal EXPO- 756301 (ERC Starting Grant, Magdalena Wojcieszak – PI). The authors are also grateful to Pablo Barbera and Andy Guess for their feedback on previous drafts of the paper, and to Youjia Huang, Thomas Struett, and Randall Whiteman for their research assistance. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Research Council. The corrected text reads.
