Nothingburger Fatigue

FATIGUE: Clinton's emails have been covered for 600 days and Americans are exhausted - Shareblue:

...Our team went back and looked at coverage since the story broke in March, 2015. We found that the emails have been mentioned in the major news media virtually every single day since then, 600 in total. This exceeds coverage of Watergate, Mitt Romney’s 47% comment, Kerry’s swiftboating, Donald Trump’s countless transgressions, and every other major political story of the modern era.

It is vastly disproportional to the importance of the issue. Polls show that the majority of Americans are tired of hearing about this issue, one that doesn’t directly affect their daily lives. So no matter how ecstatic Trump may be, he isn’t factoring in email fatigue.
