Welcome to The Trump Show—He’s Back to the Center of the Media Universe

From a New York Times media memo by Michael M. Grynbaum headlined “Welcome Back to The Trump Show”:

The indictment of former President Donald J. Trump is an unprecedented political event that may have enormous consequences for democracy.

It’s also, effectively, a season premiere.

After a brief hiatus, The Trump Show is back. Americans, ready or not, are now along for another roller-coaster ride with a protagonist whose pre-eminence in the media universe had begun to fade.

Banned from Twitter, Mr. Trump’s outbursts and grievances had stopped shaping the news cycle. Out of office, he became inherently less newsworthy. He even vanished from Fox News, his usual television home, for about four months beginning in November.
