Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Other than just consuming news as given critical consumers go further to among other things evaluate the sources of the news and dig deeper to get what might have been ignored in the news. It is therefore difficult to fully manipulate them because of these traits except that firstly notice that the truth is rarely distorted by the news,they also do not separate the implications in focus and those that are ignored for various reasons in the story. Thirdly, they do not understand news as a blend of both interpretation and fact.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
