Please move the Bezos thread back to Politics

I added a little more political material to the OP to make the connection more obvious.


Bezo’s is NOT a politician. The paper is NOT a politician. The Divorce is not politics, the pictures are not politics. It’s in the appropriate form as it is not politicians involved.

But … and the real focus here is that the National Enquirer/AMI has been involved in “catch and kill” operations for President Donald Trump. And their alleged blackmail operation could affect their non-prosecution agreement. Political. (See the link.)

Not only that, but Bezos, as owner of the Washington Post, is the reason he’s being targeted because AMI is trying to blackmail the Post from publishing negative stories about them. Political.

And there’s more: Ronan Farrow tonight said he and another investigative journalist were also targeted by AMI for blackmail. Again, political.

It’s all in the thread. This story is very political. And thus, the thread should be moved back. Thanks.

Of course it’s political. The extortion payment demanded is to have Bezos falsely say that the AMI’s actions were not political or affected by political forces. The worst kept secret in the world is that they’re talking about AMI’s efforts on behalf of Trump.ami insisted that Bezos state that he and his investigator:

They will publish the personal photos unless Gavin de Becker and I make the specific false public statement to the press that we “have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AMI’s coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces.”

If we do not agree to affirmatively publicize that specific lie, they say they’ll publish the photos, and quickly. And there’s an associated threat: They’ll keep the photos on hand and publish them in the future if we ever deviate from that lie.

It is political on its face.
