There is a term of craft in Propaganda called a “Limited Hangout.” This refers to admitting to a smaller scandal as a distraction from the larger scandal that must remain hidden.
One example can be seen in Kenneth Starr’s investigation into the Clintons’ Whitewater affair, which publicly focused obsessively on the Oval Office tryst between Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

The focus on the sex scandal created the impression in most Americans’ minds that this was the dirt at the heart of Whitewater, even though Clinton’s brief fling with Lewinsky occurred long after the events in Arkansas that Congress was investigating. Following Bill Clinton’s televised admission of an Oval Office orgasm, corporate media dropped the story.
However, while the naive in our society may have relaxed in the impression that justice more or less had been served, the reality is that Kenneth Starr had used the sex scandal to conceal from the American people far more serious crimes, ones which had they been exposed, presented a real threat to President Clinton, the CIA, and the entire credibility of the US Government as a whole!
