    mill

    What does "mill" mean in the following context?

    Steve sent a companywide e-mail about how the company previously had trouble keeping information under wraps and that ... people needed to respect confidentiality requests... Steve told <Time> in that same year that he followed rumors about Apple online every day. Later, he would contribute to that mill with his e-mails.

    Thank you.

    Rumor mill: rumor mill - Wiktionary

    With the word "mill" being so far from the word "rumor" in the passage, it's hard to see how they are connected unless you know this phrase.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
