Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson slammed what she called "transactional journalism," calling it "wholly inappropriate."
"Transactional journalism" refers to inappropriate dealings behind the scenes some journalists have with political actors, the television host and author of the new book The Smear said.
"Virtually every image you run across, whether it is in the news or on social media or elsewhere, even on comedy shows is being put there, [the players I interviewed in the 'smear universe'] say, for a purpose by somebody who wants you to think something that may not necessarily be a consensus at all, or may not even be true," Attkisson told host Shannon Bream.
"Well-funded actors" with "fake accounts" on social media and "a ton of money" use them to manipulate how we think, Attkisson said.

Oh no - you've got it all wrong - EVERYTHING she said, EVERYTHING, was 'heavily edited' - she didn't say any of that which is claimed.
It's all lies, I shall proceed to CNN to see if they are discussing this, if not, then it's lies.
All lies I tell you.
