Threatening Jeff Bezos – Not a Good Idea
National Enquirer vs. Jeff Bezos
By: Cristal M Clark
In case you might be wondering, threatening to extort Jeff Bezos really is not as lucrative as it might sound. Which the National Enquirer has discovered.
Here’s the scoop:
Thursday, Jeff took the world by storm by writing on the Washington Post Platform that the Enquirer and its parent company, American Media Inc., well known for being loyal to Donald Trump, made a threat to release dick pics of Jeff’s well other half, and other compromising pictures after he began investigating just how the tabloid obtained text messages that revealed his relationship with former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez.
Jeff, wrote that the Enquirer wanted him to make a false public statement that he and his security consultant, Gavin de Becker, “have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AMI’s coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces.”
Jeff did in fact publish what he said were emails from Enquirer executives to a lawyer representing de Becker. In one, top Enquirer editor Dylan Howard appears to suggest that the tabloid would publish a series of photos of Bezos and of Sanchez, some of them salacious, if AMI’s terms weren’t met.
Which can be backed up by others who have received similar threats. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Ronan Farrow said that he and what he referred to as “at least one other prominent journalist” had received similar blackmail threats from the Enquirer’s parent company over their reporting.
That’s fucked up.
Most adults in the US have sent via text or have some uncompromising rather candid images stored in our clouds or devices not to mention, who hasn’t had to deal with a bitter ex releasing an unauthorized video of the two of you having sex these days?
Furthermore, with all of the newest tech lately, you can put anyone’s face onto anyone’s body and create fake porn, deep live fake porn is bothersome but it’s happening so, if the Enquirer has dick pics of Jeff’s umm bff, it’s nothing new, exciting or even remotely close to being worth exploiting the man over.
The Enquirer by the way, has never since I can recall actually ever been known for any factual unbiased news gathering, they usually attempt to embarrass celebrities, politicians and now one of the wealthiest men in the world. I believe normal individuals, citizens, the general public, refer to the National Enquirer as “Fake News.”
But this time, they screwed with the wrong guy because not only is the man not stupid, he has a following of supporters that will stop at nothing to destroy the Enquirer.
Frankly, I am surprised Jeff has not yet announced a bid for 2020.
