Here's a new poll. I went through websites, polls, and also used media bias dot com to come up with this poll.

Secular Talk and Jimmy Dore are my go to for anything political news. Also Info Wars for comedy because Alex Jones is hilarious when you goes on rants.

Other would include the CBC (including CBC Newsworld), Global News, Southam News (who owns the Edmonton Journal, my local paper), Metro Edmonton, BBC Newsworld, Al-Jazira, Russia Today, and a few other non-American sources, whose tenor and journalistic bent I tend to prefer nowadays. I sporadically read articles from most of the ones you listed, but usually following specific links, except for Huffington, which, a number of years ago, became the news provider to my default homepage, and thus I clicked. My news sources are mostly papers and Internet, as I don't own a television, and haven't for over a decade.

I also read Fivethirtyeight, and my local paper (Charleston Post and Currier). Now you didn't mention this news source, but I listen to NPR on most of my morning commutes.

I keep CNN on all day in my office, but with the volume off.  I don’t care for all the talking heads yelling at each other, but I do find the news ticker at the bottom of the screen useful to have the basic idea of what’s happened.  From there, I go to google and read the first three or four news stories on the topic I saw in CNN’s ticker.  One of those may or may not be CNN, that’s fine.  I just don’t like being told the news on tv.  I like to read about it.

The only news app I have on my phone is the Associated Press.  I pop it open if I’m bored, but don’t necessarily check it every day.

538 is where I go if I’m just generally looking for political news to read.  It’s also the only podcast I listen to.

I find a lot of political news nowadays I can get by simply reading Twitter feeds. I don't need a journalist to rephrase a tweet, I can read it myself.

Ok, I must have meant to put something else there and typed that instead, but I already lost all the tabs I had open.

Alex Jones isn't really a fascist, he just plays one on his show.  He even admitted, under oath, that it was a work of performance art.

I talked to someone that had met him once. This person I talked to was his waiter. He told Alex Jones, of whom he was somewhat of a fan, "I'm glad someone is selling the truth" and Jones said, "I don't sell truth! I sell crazy!" I do think Alex Jones is mentally ill though.

If he doesnt really believe the insane stuff he is saying but says it just to get attention it is a proof more of a mental disorder.

If you got paid what he did, to say crazy stuff, you'd do it too.

Many people would take it.  Maybe even most people.

You're of course assuming EVERYONE values currency over their own ethics, values, principals, dignity, and propriety. Though it might be hard to believe, especially with the bad, repugnant stereotypes within the mostly drivel-dominated modern American media (and SOMEHOW, @ThePotatoWalrus called this schlock the "very height of culture in American history" a few months ago), there are people that do NOT have a monetary price for a lot of things.
