14. What media?

The Fake News Media? The media that they do not trust? The media that for the last 5 years, Donald Trump has been saying, "is the enemy of the 'people'"?

The media that even when the progenitor of right wing media, Fox News admitted that Biden won, they turned on Fox? How is the media supposed to convince people that think the media was one of the conspirators in rigging the election, that the election was not rigged?

You don't quell irrational thinking with facts. You have to deprogram people, like they do with cult members. It is a long and systematic process and cannot be done when the right wing media continues to perpetuate the cult mentality. If facts were all that were needed, then Donald Trump would not have been elected OR, he would have been Impeached and removed from office.

What we need to look at is the whole of right wing media. These people are literally in a cult and the cult is being fed by right wing outlets on radio, television, and the internet. While those things continue to function, it will be difficult if not impossible to change people's points of view.
