BB!

Out of your options Seth Meyers is my pick.

FYC:
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee
Weekend Update on SNL - Colin Jost and Michael Che
Les Guignols
El Intermedio
Real Time with Bill Maher
Politically Re-Active - W. Kamau Bell
Problematic - Moshe Kasher

Does it have to be a TV show? 'Cause...The Onion.

John Banner: "I see nothing! I hear nothing! I know nothing!"

Possible answer option for None of the above or preferred ignorance option

Nice poll idea. Just an idea, FYC Might work better comically, as a face-off focused on types of news sources with a small number of options. 1. Nightly News Report 2. Satirical News Programs (ie Weekend Update-SNL) 3. Late Show Monologues 4.Donald Trump's Twitter Feed  5. Preferred Ignorance

I like this idea.  I'll setup a second list so the poll gods will have a choice.

Well done, I like the second option, having choices is never a bad thing. FYC

I added an image that is more demonstrative of Donald Trump twitter feed, if you prefer. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0972177/mediaviewer/rm1317021696

Title Face-Off: What is your preferred source for US political news? I think questions that ask Which or What might be better here than Who or Where. Also, splitting hairs here, but some programs are weekly so "daily dose" might be a stretch.

The Shultz option might benefit from a bit more explanation. Some people have tired of the US political saga or prefer to act like an ostrich with their head in the sand. The result is they prefer not to stay abreast of daily news. Schultz, likewise thought it safer and better to stay unaware of the daily activities of the POW camp. A younger generation may not be aware of his signature line from Hogan's Heroes that included his repeated stated ignorance on all matters.

I prefer a Sgt. Shultzian view of U.S. political news: "I see nothing! I hear nothing! I know nothing, knnnothing!"

"I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know nothing" is hilarious. Well, for the poll, anyway -- unfortunately, it's also the serious stance of many. And then there's the Presidential version: "I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know everything," lol.
