American news organizations may complain of Trump Fatigue.
But whether or not we’ll admit it, we have a far worse condition: Trump Addiction. Combined with the candidate’s own need for attention, and his skill at keeping all eyes riveted on him, it’s going to be a hard habit to break.
“Trump is catnip, especially to the cable news media. He is not going away,” predicted Jane Hall, a former Fox News contributor and now a communications professor at American University. “I doubt that he is going to let go of the adulation.”
And she said, depending on how his supporters react to a loss, continuing coverage could well be valid.
“Unfortunately, a lot of forces have been unleashed and they are going to deserve coverage,” Hall said.
