As was feared by some forward thinkers, Dotards constant barrage of stupidity has become the new normal.

The result of this is two fold. First, visits to site pages chronicling his antics is falling off significantly. And second, visit to news sites in general are dropping off. This may lead to economic stress on a number of media.

"Trump slump" hits big media
Top news executives tell Axios that a real "Trump slump" is hitting digital, cable and more.

Why it matters: The shock factor around President Trump's unplanned announcements, staff departures, taunting tweets and erratic behavior is wearing off, and media companies are scrambling to find their next big moneymaker.

Driving the news: Executives tell Axios that Trump fatigue is very real: Interest in political coverage overall is down, which is spurring investments in other beats, like technology and the global economy.

Democrats don't appear to be the lifeline media companies are hoping can fill the gap for diminished Trump interest. Executives say they expect this week’s debate ratings to be nothing like the ratings for the 2016 Trump debates.

Be smart: Part of the problem is that 2020 Democrats don't have a knock-out media star to drive interest in the election. To date, the Democrats' biggest media attraction has been Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who isn't running for president.

Other candidates split the spotlight in the crowded Democratic primary field.
By the numbers: Digital demand for Trump-related content (number of article views compared to number of articles written) has dropped 29% between the first 6 months of the Trump presidency and the most recent 6 months, according to data from traffic analytics company Parse.ly.

Evidence that Trump's social media star power was also beginning to wear off surfaced last month, when Axios reported that his tweets were receiving less than half the engagement that they got when he first took office.

Interpretation from Candian English to reality....... THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA IS RUNNING OUT OF THINGS TO LIE ABOUT TRUMP, AND IT IS KILLING THEIR RATINGS.

Actually MSNBC is catching Fox. Maddow actually beat Hannity the first quarter of this year. MSNBC has closed the gap to fox by substantial margins.

The TRUTH is however, NONE of them are really doing all that well overall. 330 MILLION people in the nation and even Faux News can't attract a full 1% of the population. By comparison Game of Thrones on HBO which is a PAID premium channel had almost 32.8 million, damned near 10% of the country, tuned in !!

Trumps interview with ABC was a total ratings flop. It pulled in less than 4 million viewers, making it number three in the time slot well behind the other two networks. The previous weeks Celebrity Family Feud on the same channel and time had more than 6 million viewers. At the same time as Trump's interview Fox had the US Open with more than 7 million.

Your assessment is pretty much right on target. Refreshing to read sense and sensibility.

Truth tell, media today has lost so much credibility, especially with the 2 year collusion hoax, it's a wonder anyone watches it at all.
Probably only the lunatic Liberal fringe watches and reads, that's about 1% of the population. But boy, they sure are loudmouths.

None louder than the RNC's propaganda arm, aka, Faux News. Even they can't get a full 1% of the population.
