Newly declassified CIA documents show that the CIA was paying journalists and media companies to plant stories or suppress others. Among them, the New York Times, Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal.
But that was way back in the 1950’s – 1970’s. Nothing like that happens today.
Of course a coordinated political hit must take place against AG Jeff Sessions before he rolls up all of the previous President’s DOJ officials or investigates any money laundering schemes (involving this guy who just suicided himself).
