One would have to wonder if after a certain point the companies that provide protection from DDOS attacks, like Cloudflare, could possibly be the ones implementing the attacks, but you didn't hear that from me.

DDoS were a thing way before Cloudflare existed.

True, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be good for business if it happened more frequently to people not using their service.

Not saying they are, but they would definitely have a motive to do it.

It's probably the feds. They want to keep the news the way the upper echelon wants it. So any alternative news or chatter scares them.
