Y'know, funny thing, I recall a lot of people pooh-poohing a story about presidential candidate Gary Hart getting busted getting frisky with a lady not his wife because it ran in the National Enquirer. Anybody else remember how that all shook out in the end in spite of the media outlet that leaked the story? Anyone? How did Gary do in that race, anyone recall?

Trick is that when all the "legitimate" media outlets all belong to the same five or six companies and they all have vested interests in promulgating specific narratives any stories outside of the authorized narrative are, by default, going to show up in some oddball places. That's how media consolidation works.
