Why does QAnon and the Alt-Right depend on FoxNews, OAN & Newsmax for their sources of news?

    I tend to listen to all the presentations for BS is BS and one who sees both sides can see when BS is being sold as Ice Cream.

    They put an extra twist on truth. They do not like living in reality.

    QAnon is an online, propaganda, fictional, fantasy game that Steve Bannon and Steve Miller invented for the brainwashed trumpsters to keep them distracted from reality.

    because right wingers have a bad habit of not fact checking their sources which is why they spread misinformation and buy into conspiracies  like anti-mask nonsense, pro-patriot dingbats and  anti-vax  websites,  anti- blm, anti raising minimum wage, and sources consisting of nonsense claims accusing biden for negative things.

    whenever you try to give them the least biased sources that have rarely failed fact checks, they use  ignorant excuses to claim that fact checking sites are liberal bias 

    so trying to reason with them is nearly impossible 

    this is why america is so screwed over and polarized, we are not educating our people how to research and use critical thinking skills.

    we put  ideology ahead of objective truth and facts  and the alt right and qanon are the biggest examples of it

    Probably because all the others are FOS.  That's my guess.

    FWIW, I have only heard about QAnon (from the totally unbiased mainstream media) and have no idea who OAN or Newsmax are.
