8. The biggest: Massive media attacks on Democrats.

Various reasons. Most RW-generated of course; RW agents are embedded in most news organizations now, and the agendas they serve will remain, strategy altered a bit maybe. But also will be the venal and just generally despicable interests on both right and left, also of course.

Trump and Repubs have kept the media supplied with very high-octane fuel 24/7/365, and if Repubs lose power to control they'll also lose much of their newsworthiness to the Dems, and much of their rush to cover the news will become rush to create, to sustain.

Outfits that specialize in swiftboating Democrats by filling the media's 24/7/365 news cycle with their poison have mostly been in eclipse, but now they're undoubtedly planning eagerly for a return of their fat days. Judicial Watch's 40 or so partners alone, with their big windows overlooking the Capitol, have had very successful careers focused mainly on persecuting the Clintons and manufacturing fill dirt for other Democrats; at one time their material was "news" almost every day, but they've had to scramble while we've been out. Poor things are exiled to work that doesn't make the viewing screen, mostly lawsuits aimed at vote suppression, causing trouble for Democrats, etc., in many states.
