The New York Post: Trump White House paid media-coverage monitor $27,000 after Stormy Daniels filed to break NDA: report

The White House spent more than $27,000 to track news stories in early March, according to a report — and OK’d the payment the day after a major development in the Stormy Daniels saga.

The money reportedly went to TVEyes, a company that monitors media coverage in print, TV and radio, on March 7.

Daniels launched a lawsuit to free her from a confidentiality agreement on March 6.

Federal procurement documents do not specify which stories the monitoring service was asked to track, according to TMZ, which reported on the documents Saturday.

TVEyes had contracts with the Obama White House as well, according to TMZ, but the $27,000 expenditure is the largest amount the Executive Office has ever spent on the company.
