This is basically backwards

Infowars never has the best coverage

Because it's a at best a crazy conspiracy site, and at worst a far right conspiracy site.

This is actually a massive problem with YouTube in which Google optimizes for time spent watching and ad time which drives a lot of people to far right and conspiratorial content. And a lot of people are complain I that Google needs to fix thay

Comparing views held in 1994 with views held in 2017, it is clear that nothing is driving a lot of people to the far right. Quite the opposite is happening. A sort of relativity may be in play here, making it seem as if other people are moving to the right if the observer is moving to the left.
