Something that appears to be incomprehensible to the normie public (your friend is a dumbass normie, emphasis on the dumbass as in deliberately stupid) is the following set of notions:

- Humans of all levels of life, reputations, and roles can and will lie.
- "Professional" journalists can be exceptionally partisan and can color their reporting as such.
- News organizations are ratings and advertising driven. Disturbing information will drive away monetization by viewers.
- News organizations themselves can have clear political agendas.
- On the ground reporting by self funded bloggers, video reporters and content creators often penetrates the truth deeply in a way that's alien to large news organizations.

The normie believes that news organizations may have slight bias but also think "how bad can it be? They're supposed to be telling the truth and I can't possibly believe otherwise."

The normie listens intently to the ABC evening news telling him that Youtube content creators are unskilled stupid amateurs and far right racist monsters.

So you're fighting the the idea that big companies don't and will not lie, and that paying attention to any off brand information will turn the guy into a Nazi and will make him retarded just by listening.
