Trump hasn’t been in the White House for coming up on a month now, but the media’s certainly not finished with him yet, as CNN’s Wolf Blitzer demonstrated:
The Trump trial is over but local, state & federal investigations continue. There might be a 9/11-type commission. News organizations continue to investigate. And @realBobWoodward is working on a book on Trump’s final days in office. Bottom line: we are going to learn a lot more.

It certainly doesn’t sound like the media plans on being finished with Trump any time soon. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway summed up the addiction perfectly:
The media's post-Trump performance is reminiscent of an addict who, after a bit of withdrawal, finds a stash of drugs and begins putting them in every orifice. https://t.co/IzlU0Ovq5L

As soon as Trump left office the media started getting the shakes and they’ve got to do something to address it.
Overdue for another "bombshell"!

Citing “anonymous sources” no doubt!
He’s their ratings fuel.

Ratings, book sales — everything.
