► Over 5,000 subjects were asked if they remembered fabricated political events. ► About half of the sample showed evidence of memory distortion. ► Political preferences appeared to guide the formation of false memories. ► Suggestions that are congruent with prior attitudes and evaluations can produce feelings of familiarity and recognition. ► These can in turn bias source judgments, leading to false memories.
