Consider data from mediaQuant, a firm that measures “earned media,” which is all coverage that isn’t paid advertising. To calculate a dollar value of earned media, it first counts every mention of a particular brand or personality in just about any outlet, from blogs to Twitter to the evening news to The New York Times. Then it estimates how much the mentions would cost if someone were to pay for them as advertising.
We’re reading Facebook and watching cable, and there,Trump is all anyone talks about, to the exclusion of almost all else.
Mr. Trump broke mediaQuant’s records. In a single month, he received $817 million in coverage, higher than any single person has ever received in the four years that mediaQuant has been analyzing the media, according to Paul Senatori, the company’s chief analytics officer. For much of the past four years, Mr. Obama’s monthly earned media value hovered around $200 million to $500 million. The highest that Hillary Clinton got during the presidential campaign was $430 million, in July.

Trump has taken up residence on every media outlet of any kind, political or not.
It’s not just that Mr. Trump’s coverage beats anyone else’s.
He is now beating pretty much everyone else put together
Trump is 90 percent of the news, But he’s not 90 percent of what’s important in the world.
Every new story prompts outrage, which puts the stories higher in your feed, which prompts more coverage, which encourages more talk, and on and on.

Everything is about Trump now. The left made sure of it. lol. You know how people say that the people who do not agree with homosexuality feel that way because they want to be homosexuals themselves? If they are right, then I guess the anti-Trump people don't like him because they see themselves in him.

President Trump is hated by freeloaders, and loved by those who actually work.
The party in power always warrants more scrutiny, even when it’s operating smoothly.
