NBC News’ First Read—their daily breaking news summary—made note of something that prior to January 2017 would have been considered a major development. Now, not so much.
What was this paradigm shift?

NBC called the Trump administration “ethically challenged.”
According to NBC:
“Any one of these stories would have dominated the news — for days and weeks — in any other administration. But in our current era, it was just Tuesday.”
And people noticed the new normal.
