pay to sway
 v.— «Three “journalists” who by their actions have birthed a new phrase, “pay to sway.” (For the record, Maggie? Yes, you did violate journalistic ethics. Not for nothing is journalism called the Fourth Estate, a term that’s British in origin and means, roughly, “As a journalist, you may work around politicians, but you may not work for them.”)» —“Propaganda, Journalism And Knowing The Difference” by Susan Campbell Hartford Courant (Conn.) Feb. 2, 2005.
