How did dirty dossier get into the hands of so many reporters if Fusion did not want it to?

NY Times:

Fusion GPS Founder Hauled From the Shadows for the Russia Election Investigation

Glenn R. Simpson’s firm quietly compiled the notorious dossier of possible links between President Trump and Russia. Then it became public.
Fusion GPS has the reputation of being a hardball player in dealing with political enemies of its clients.  Part of its MO is to feed dirt on adversaries of its clients to liberals in the media.  I suspect it became public because they thought it would help their clients. 

Now it is possible they did not want to be associated with the document, and their client did not want to be associated with the document, but it was of no value to either of them if it just sat in their offices.  Of course, it was going to become public,  they just did not want others to know they were responsible for "scurrilous and unsubstantiated charges" against a political opponent.

Devin Nunes has provided a real service to the cause of transparency when it comes to political skullduggery.  It does appear that many in the media knew for some time about Fusion's role in the dossier but in this case, they were not interested in transparency because they shared the objectives of those responsible for the dossier.

I get the feeling that Trump's opponents desperately wanted the dossier to be proven true because it fit their narrative and their objectives.  It also looks like some in the FBI and DOJ also wanted this and acted on it despite its obvious flaws.
