Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

It may have shocked the world when the publisher of the National Enquirer allegedly tried to use nude pictures to coerce Jeff Bezos. But it came as no surprise to three veterans of the Enquirer's parent company, American Media Inc. "The threats, the blackmail, that's their business model," one former National Enquirer staffer told The Daily Beast.

As I posted in the AMI thread:

Catch and Kill has been all of the tabloids MO for decades, as I have said previously, every time you see a headline like "National Enquirer has exclusive interview with...." that person has granted access to that particular rag in exchange for burying a story.

Oprah, Stallone, Cruise even Spielberg have all given "exclusives" to NE, Globe, the British tabloids, it is far more common than you would expect.

I am 100% behind Bezos on this and I hope he really sticks it to the NE.

After Bezos has opened the door, it wouldn't be surprising for loads of past NE victims will also speak up.

Extortion tactics do not belong in American society. I'd love for the NE/AMI to be sued out of business.
