Stream News Networks without Sling?

Is there any option via Roku for streaming MSNBC, CNN and Fox News without a subscription to Sling. Sling is horrible and I watch literally nothing on it except news. I would like to be able to stream this networks through the January 20, 2021 inaugural or coup d'état, whichever occurs. I have the $30/month sling package. It's a lot to pay for three channels of bad news. Any suggestions?

Pluto is free and has a handful of news stations.  Have a look and see if it will meet your needs -- no Fox or MSNBC, but a bunch of others
