My mother-in-law believes TV media religiously. She tried to argue about race, politics, and "peaceful protests" for years, using talking points from The Narrative.

My husband would argue right back with statistics and first-person sources from the internet. Media lies only survive because they edit video clips so carefully. Watching the original video - of a Trump rally, of a "racist" attack, etc. - quickly reveals their lies.

He'd send her links to original video. I don't think she ever watched them. Her go-to closing line was, "Well, I just don't believe it."

She finally stopped talking about politics completely. She would rather pretend the media is trustworthy.
