When a James Bond villain comes up with a plan to destroy the world, he doesn’t use a simple plan. No, he uses a machination — a complex plot that relies on numerous elements coming together to work.
Politicians love a good machination, and their machinations are frequently exposed in the press as scandals.

The Fourth branch of government meant to be another check and balance of the government has become a corrupt soul less shell of itself,perhaps it has always been that way, and people including myself have always had an over romanticized view of government, and the media including Americans themselves will never look in to the mirror, and will never admit they are at fault for anything.
Honestly our media, and our government are that mirror, they are reflections of ourselves, because they are us.
First step in self recovery is to admitting just who and where the problems lays.
Imo that is You, and Me.
Mr. and Mrs America.

You might be confusing the Fourth Estate (outright purchased by Morgan for the
Rothchilds near 1900) with the "Headless Fourth Branch" of government..
the administrative state. I think the machinations are and always were based in
The non governmental organizations that draft the legislation don't answer to anyone
but their owners, not the people. This is why bills get ram rodded through the House
and Senate sometimes without the pups ever seeing the stuff, they're irrelevant now.
It's for example the reason nobody on The hill is doing anything about Monsanto---
they OWN the FDA... and a sizeable portion of the gift certificates for the puppets.
Ain't corruption grand? I'll take my fifty in fifties please LOL.
