You know, I was thinking the other day.....about all the left-learning journalists devoted to Russiagate and pumping up any and all stories which are disadvantaging to Trump.......

I don't have the exact numbers on this, but most certainly the number of clicks/paper sold/news shows watched/eyeballs on the various news sources over the last five years has been heavily inflated because of the public's perverse appetite for All Things Trump. What we know is that the public's attention to news outlets is higher in the Age of Trump; what we don't know is what will happen at the End of the Age of Trump --- but reasonable people can conclude that a less provocative president (which Biden most certainly is) will result in a lot of people who tuned in only for Trump tuning out again.

The left-learning journalists, the ones that pushed Russiagate, Stormygate, the Impeachment, and other festive events will have a party should Trump be evicted from the White House. The party ends when the eyes-on their employer’s media outlet drops 40% without Trump, and 40% of them get laid off, in part because of the narratives they helped push.

Ironic, eh?
