They genuinely believe that the right to bear arms is a good thing and the deaths that result, while tragic, are the price of freedom.

Freedom is messy but then again so is life. Shall we get rid of automobiles? People genuinely believe their right to own a car is a good thing and the deaths from accidents and environmental destruction, while tragic, are the price of convenience.

You're apparently a moron or pretending to be one for the purpose of conflating news events... The fact is there are state sponsored crackers in Russia and their methods have been documented. They attack journalists in Russia and opposition figures, Ukraine military, and yes they attacked bot GOP and DNC campaigns. Being stupid is your right as an American I suppose, but no one here should bother entertaining your sarcastic and poorly conceived notions of how intelligence and propaganda campaigns are carried out in 2017.

No proof, no belief.

And I don't even doubt much that it could be Russians but show us the fucking proof for Christ's sake!

But what outlets and what standards?

Take RT for instance, even in the fucking summary they slid in "kremlin backed" to throw shade and I hear a lot about supposed propaganda RT engages in. Yet whenever I read one of their stories it seems pretty fucking decent, especially compared to anything "mainstream" be it CNN, NPR, Fox or what have you.
