Some notable names on the list that fall within our Questionable or Conspiracy categories are: Mike CernovichMilo Yiannopoulos, Taki’s Magazine, Return of Kings, Zerohedge, and Roosh V. Many of these sources have been labeled White Nationalist, and some appear on the Southern Poverty Law Center website for hate.
