Does this explain the favorable Trump coverage

Washington Examiner:
Breitbart's national security editor Sebastian Gorka received a one-time payment of $8,000 from Donald Trump's presidential campaign last October, Federal Election Commission records show.

According to an FEC filing first reported by Buzzfeed News, the Trump campaign paid Gorka for "policy consulting" on Oct. 1, 2015. As recently as Monday, Gorka was identified as Breitbart's "national security editor" by the news outlet itself.
...
The newest revelation of the Trump campaign's relationship with Breitbart News comes on the heels of several ex-employees' claims that the right-wing media outlet has pressured its staff into favorable coverage of the Republican presidential front-runner.
...
At a minimum, the relationship should have been disclosed in any Trump coverage by the outlet.  It certainly raises questions of journalist ethics.
