The Illusion of Truth Effect

People are fascinated with organized crime. Criminals rat on other criminals. Deals are made. Court proceedings take place. Journalists race to report what they're told. Authors publish gory details from whatever source they can obtain them-- and the public believes it.

It's referred to as the illusion of truth effect. The repetition of so-called facts makes the story seem true. It has worked well for those who promoted the story of Whitey Bulger -- from the federal government down. Now, Bulger's talking.
