That vast swathes of the left, who mistakenly imagine they are far, far, cleverer than someone lik Trump, or the deplorables who votes for him... in contrast, seem to swallow the media campaigns that specifically target them, to a remarkable degree.
What they fail to understand, is that post Iraq and the infamously non-existant Weapons of Mass destruction, a decision was made by the West to never, ever, allow anything like the public opposition to the war to be repeated. This meant a complete clampdown on the news media and absoltute control over who was allowed access to it. For example, John Pilger had a critical column in the Daily Mirror, now he's been erased and cancelled.
That the left seem unaware that we now live in a form of dictatorship with a media that's under state control... well, it's rather sad, to put it mildly.
