I was having a conversation about this with someone recently, the fact that once someone has convinced themselves that there is some massive conspiracy involving the government and media, etc, you can’t disprove it. There’s no point in arguing it, because clearly any evidence offered is part of the conspiracy, and any scientific study contradicting it was clearly done by someone being paid by the conspirators.

There’s simply nothing you can offer that will convince someone in this position, they have closed their mind to any other possibility. Sadly, on some subjects, this describes way too many people.
