    I usually get my news here, because those are the headlines that are really going to get people fired up, and the links are all in one place.

    Fun fact: read the onion for about ten minutes, then go to a legitimate news site and read the headlines. The overwhelming majority of them will sound like onion headlines.

    Re: News Outlets You Get Your News From

    I have gotten news from every single one of those news outlets at some time or another. I prefer to get my news from all different kinds of outlets and all different perspectives so I can form my own informed opinion. My preference out of the list provided would have to be RT though. I like that they broadcast views that are not typically given as much airtime on other news outlets. Helps to diversify my knowledge of politics a bit.

    If you say so. The way I arrived at my decision was actually from the iphone app Newsify, which supplies headlines from a giant assortment of sources. You can click on and off the news sites you don't like, so I deleted news sources that had obvious click bait ("You won't BELIEVE what this cat said when it ate its owner's head!!!"), celebrity gossip ("Woody Allen shows side boob!"), headlines posed as questions ("Did Obama eat a newborn baby?") and advertisements disguised as news articles ("People murdering each other by the millions over new iPhone6!!!). What was left at the end was my list.

    RT is Russian State News.
