Some of Trump’s supporters told BuzzFeed News that their media consumption habits changed during the campaign.
One supporter told BuzzFeed News that she was turned off by a changed media landscape. “Our local paper fell apart,” she said, and too many outlets rush to be first. Now, she said, she watches Right Side Broadcasting — a mostly YouTube channel that gained prominence by streaming every Trump campaign rally — and “watched MSNBC [on election night] because I wanted to see them whine.”
Another supporter told BuzzFeed News he either gets his news from C-SPAN — which mostly airs the workings of government without commentary — and the Kremlin-backed Russia Today, now known as RT.
Other supporters said they got their news from Facebook — recently embroiled in a controversy over promoting fake news — the National Enquirer, and Dennis Michael Lynch, who openly promotes news favorable to Trump.
