Forty years ago I was in college for journalism. ( I didn’t go into the field... It was corrupt then too) however, The idea that reporters would be “paid” to write stories was thought of as extremely unethical and actually was considered to be “tabloid” journalism to the extreme. The fact that now no one is even appalled by this practice... Not just who got paid but that it was done at all... Is astounding. It’s obvious that payment for placing stories has been going on for some time... We all suspected it, just didn’t have proof. The best thing about Trump is that the collusion between media and democrats is coming to light.
