Is there a term referring to the tendency of a person to believe something to be true simply because it is noted down somewhere?
By noted down I mean either written down in real life or on the internet, but also broadcasted on TV or included in any other form of media.
My first thoughts were belief and confirmation bias, but I feel like neither of those terms match what I'm looking for. The closest I got to an answer is this question, Term for the sense that something must be true because many people talk about it, which I found on this site, but what I'm looking for is focused more on a single person, not considering the society as a whole.
To describe it in another way, I'm looking for a term which would describe a person neglecting to check the validity of a fact, not because they trust the source of the fact, but simply because they are tired or their mind is somehow occupied with something else.
