The media shows no desire to cover anything "real" with respect to Trump. They latch on to every rumor or story that they THINK will show him in a bad light. The other problem the media faces is that the public remembers how they protected Obama and covered for him every time they could. Now they see Trump getting excoriated for every thing he says - they can see the double standard and they don't like it.

There's also a bit of the "boy who cries WOLF" in the medias coverage of all things Trump. When you manufacture a weekly outrage against Trump the public soon becomes immune to outrage. In a weird sort if way the media has inoculated Trump against outrage by overplaying their hand.
