The description of motivated reasoning looks very similar to that for myside
bias (but doesn't sound quite so derogatory).

Myside bias is well described in the cognitive psychology literature, and
its relevance to medicine is beginning to be felt.

For those with an interest in cognitive psychology, this is a fascinating
look at 'motivated reasoning'.  I'm not sure how much of this is relevant to
decision-making in diagnosis, but it certainly helps explain the tension
many of us feel in having a political discussion these days ;<)
