The issue is that everyone teachable learned during the Gulf War that our relationship with the media has changed forever and that unless you see the same take in a few different places, it's bullshit. Everyone who isn't teachable is out of reach anyway.

It's been disheartening to watch the world decide that the best approach towards anti-vax parents is to SHOUT SCIENCE AT THEM LOUDER. Because "restoring faith in the medical establishment" is something your average normie has no idea how to approach, we walk around Facebook preaching to the converted and assuming that the people whose basis in life is a fundamental distrust of authority will somehow come around.
