Misinformation media consumers are similar to the religious in that they believe a preacher. Their bias prevents them from properly seeking evidence against their cult. Believers by default, they are easily taken advantage of for agendas that elude them.
Example: Fox settled out of court with Dominion Voting Systems to avoid having trial evidence going mainstream, sheltering their base from facts such as Tucker Carlson and his colleagues sharing texts with each other about their lies and laughing at their base for believing.
Though there is plenty of evidence without a trial (evidence I’m relaying easily found), fake news consumers remain both ignorance and bias blind. Like proving the Genesis account wrong with facts, the faithful remain as resistant to thinking as a fence post.
