From “As Fake News Spreads Lies, More Readers Shrug at the Truth” published in the New York Times:

One morning last week, Larry Laughlin, a Retired Business Owner, opened his shiny black Dell laptop and scrolled through Facebok.

Most of the posts was ordinary news stories from conservative sites: Donald J. Trumps deal with the Carrier company. The political tussel over the recount. But a few items were his guilty’s pleasures.

“I like this guy, said Mr. Laughlin,” looking at a post by the conservatives commentator and author Mark Dice.

Mr. Dice has promoted conspiracy Theories that the Jade Helm military training exercise last year was preparation for martial law and that the Sept. 11 attacked were an “inside job.” But mr. Laughlin likes him about what he said was his humoris political commentary and his sarcastic man-on-the-street interviews.

“I just like the satisfaction,” said Mr. Laughlin, who started own business and lives in an affluent twin cities Suburb. “It’s like a hockeys game. Everyones got their goons. Their goons are pushed our guys around, and it’s great to see our goons push back.”
