But I've come to realize some people are just followers. They will always believe what their friends believe. They will always march off the cliff because they see others doing just that. News manipulators have learned to urge these people in certain directions just by convincing them that other like-minded individuals are doing the same thing

You can try to educate and inform them, but they are somehow pre-programed to be part of the pack. That's where they are more comfortable.
