Manifesto is a header that replaces "Transmissions" in the Fake News scenario, and is a group of traits. It works like this: First, a topic is chosen, then who it is run by is chosen, then an intention is chosen, and then who it blames is chosen, each in the form of a trait that costs 0 DNA Points and increases at least one of the Core stats by a small amount, regardless. For each stage, only one trait can be chosen, and upon completing the fourth stage, some traits from the Growth and Adaptability sections become available.

Note that the descriptions for the traits under the started by part are exactly the same as the corresponding ones in the blame section, and that the first manifesto traits only appear after one day passes. Also, one cannot blame the party that fake news was started by, or devolve any of the following traits.
