But of course most of the low rent talking heads will continue to use the word “unprecedented” when describing Russian attempts to influence the 2016 American presidential election. Here is Wikipedia:

The 1948 general election was greatly influenced by the Cold War that was starting between the United States and the Soviet Union.

The CIA, by its own admission, gave $1 million to Italian “center parties” and was accused of publishing forged letters in order to discredit the leaders of the Italian Communist Party. The National Security Act of 1947, that made foreign covert operations possible, had been signed into law about six months earlier by the American President Harry S. Truman.

“We had bags of money that we delivered to selected politicians, to defray their political expenses, their campaign expenses, for posters, for pamphlets,” according to CIA operative F. Mark Wyatt. In order to influence the election, the US agencies undertook a campaign of writing ten million letters, made numerous short-wave radio broadcasts and funded the publishing of books and articles, all of which warned the Italians of what was believed to be the consequences of a communist victory. Time Magazine backed the campaign and featured the Christian Democrat leader and Prime Minister Alcide De Gasperi on its cover and in its lead story on 19 April 1948.

….

The Christian Democrats eventually won the 1948 election with 48% of the vote, and the FDP received 31%. The CIA’s practice of influencing the political situation was repeated in every Italian election for at least the next 24 years.[13] A leftist coalition would not win a general election for the next 48 years, until 1996. That was partly because of Italians’ traditional bent for conservatism and, even more importantly, the Cold War, with the US closely watching Italy, in their determination to maintain a vital NATO presence amidst the Mediterranean and retain the Yalta-agreed status quo of western Europe.
