Guys like Dan Lyons and Rob Enderle are professional trolls. The more they get quoted in the press, the more money they make, hence they have an incentive to say controversial things that get people riled up. When people confront them on it, they usually back track or say "it was a joke". It is the same strategy that Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh use to drive ratings and book sales.
