Well, there’s definitely something to be said about being careful what you wish for:

BuzzFeed’s the only outlet with an increase, and it’s a relatively slight increase. And aside from Fox News, all of the outlets have a decidedly liberal bent.

Without Trump, the Atlantic has lost *more than half* of its online audience in the last year alone. The NYT and the Guardian have lost 1/3 of theirs. MSNBC and CNN's cable ratings are even worse.
