As a lark, have him watch these clips from MSM sources. Don't claim any conspiracy in any way. Let is speak for itself and perhaps have a laugh. Perhaps after watching, on some level, he won't see his credible MSM sources in the quite same way.
Over the last 30 years, media has been dramatically concentrated into fewer hands. Back in the early 80's, approximately 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the United States. Today, ownership of the news media has been concentrated into six or so incredibly powerful media corporations. MSM news is certainly more homogenized and less independent than it once was.
In these clips, Conan O'Brian is subtly poking fun at this state of affairs. Same news stories are being told word-for-word verbatim across rival networks (FOX, ABC, CBS, etc) on the local news.
