Historical political cartoon.
The headband of the woman says 'Press'.
Today it might say 'Internet'.
I fully appreciate comments about the technical difficulty of rooting out the implanted malware.
This addresses the political side of the same situation.
This historic political cartoon shows that this kind of corruption and shady deals in high places is nothing new, and highlights the efficacy of (then) the Press, and (now) the Internet, to expose it to the light of day.
It also ennobles those exposing ethical wrongdoing as a just and time-honored pursuit, and shows that the miscreants involved do not like being exposed, and fear exposure for good reason.
