How Do You Cover A Man Like Trump

I started writing a semi-charitable take on political journalists covering Trump, but then I realized it made me a sucker. I don't know why journalists cover him like they do, but they have never covered him as they covered other candidates/presidents. 

Trump will get indicted again and no matter what the charges that detail will be lost from ongoing coverage except when explicitly relevant. New stories can append ", indicted on dozens of felony charges," to every mention of his name, or they could not do that. It isn't normal to not do that.  They won't do that.
