From the February 27 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): There is no question that if the national media does not like your politics, it will try to hurt you, even if you are deceased. Anyone denying that is a deceiver.
Of course, the Trump administration is well aware of this. It knows the media is desperately trying to link the Trump campaign to Russia and will use anonymous sources to drive that narrative in the hope the election will be perceived as invalid.
By the way, we do not -- do not use anonymous sources here. I have been told plenty of bad stuff about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but without attribution, it is not going to be reported.
