he's been a naughty boy

I really don't care if a business man is screwing around on his wife.

It is not good for his public image and may have destroyed and political ambitions, but it is not relevant to anyone other than gossip mavens.

Abramowitz must have been drinking with Ghouliani.lol

"Giuliani: ‘Truth isn’t truth’




David Pecker's Attorney Says Being Blackmailed Isn't Blackmail

Elkan Abramowitz claimed that extorting someone is just an attempt at truth seeking for the National Enquirer.


"David Pecker's lawyer told ABC's This Week that AMI wasn't trying to blackmail Jeff Bezos because all AMI wanted was the truth to come out.

Huh?

Since Trump began his run at the presidency in 2015, there has never been so much deceit, gaslighting, and outright lies being told by everyone involved in American politics from Republicans, amped up by all those that surround Donald.

Elkan Abramowitz, Pecker's attorney, who joined Stephanopoulos, gaslit viewers throughout the entire email exchange between AMI and Jeff Bezos by claiming that the founder of Amazon made public which clearly states that AMI was threatening to release embarrassing photos of him unless he changed the WaPo's reporting on the National Enquirer.

That's not a negotiating tactic, that's blackmail.

Here's some of the transcript:

STEPHANOPOULOS: But the National Enquirer believes that these photos were newsworthy, yet they’re offering there not to publish them in return for a thing of value from Jeff Bezos. Letting go of the legal liabilities, saying it wasn't politically motivated. How is that not extortion?

ABRAMOWITZ: That is not extortion because all that AMI wanted was the truth. Bezos and Ms. Sanchez knew who the source was. Any investigator that was going to investigate this knew who the source was. It was not the White House, it was not Saudi Arabia. And the libel that was going out there slamming AMI was that this was all a political hatchet job sponsored by either a foreign nation or somebody politically in this country. That is something that -- and the story was already published. How -- it's a news decision to decide how long you can go with the same story so that each side -- it was part of a legitimate negotiation.

Each side had something that they wanted.

STEPHANOPOULOS: A source close to the -- close to those conversations, familiar with those conversations says this was a crime, not a negotiation.

ABRAMOWITZ: The source is totally wrong. It's absolutely not a crime to ask somebody to simply tell the truth. Tell the truth that this was not politically motivated and we will print no more stories."

Can Freedom of the Press Survive David Pecker?

The National Enquirer pushed the limits of journalistic norms—and in the process called into question the legal protections enjoyed by the media.

8:28 AM ET
Bob Bauer
Former White House Counsel under Barack Obama

snip:



" I will not report embarrassing information about you if you do X for me. And if you don’t do X quickly, I will report the embarrassing information"

"By passing over from the pursuit of news to corporate bullying for self-interested purposes—or, in the campaign-finance case, coordinated political activity with a candidate—a media organization risks forfeiting the constitutional protections normally working in its favor. Adherence to professional norms constitutes the first line of legal defense, the backbone of the claim for privileged treatment based on First Amendment values.

Legal exemptions for news organizations often rest on explicit appeals to these norms. To escape the reach of the campaign-finance laws, a press entity has to be acting as a press entity, performing what the Federal Election Commission has characterized as a “legitimate press function.” The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which requires reporting of political or public-relations work on behalf of foreign nationals, carves out protections only for press entities’ “bona fide” news coverage.

It is unsettling to strong supporters of press freedom (and I consider myself one) to accept that, because of the absence of overriding constitutional immunities, a press entity can find itself a corporation like any other having to defend against campaign finance, extortion, FARA, or other charges. But AMI’s case shows that a media organization can assume too much.

AMI certainly assumed far too much about its latitude as a press entity to link arms with Michael Cohen in the defense of Donald Trump’s political interests. It was certainly forewarned. The Supreme Court majority in Citizens United went somewhat out of its way to deny that the Constitution singles out the press as a “preferred speaker” in the political process.

That AMI is a media publisher, within the broadest construction of the term, did not allow it to become an auxiliary of the Trump campaign and engage in activities far removed from those that merit the most intense constitutional press protections. David Pecker, the chairman and CEO of AMI, was entitled to his personal political interests and preferences; his chairmanship of the company and power to deploy its resources in the furtherance of his political goals did not transform his partisan purposes into a “freedom of the press” issue.

Whether a media organization can successfully claim the most robust legal protections has a great deal to do with its compliance with norms. In his opinion for the Court in Citizens United, Justice Anthony Kennedy noted the danger that other interests, unrelated to the news-gathering function, might drive a news company’s behavior.

He pointed to the potential of a “conglomerate that owns both a media business and an unrelated business to influence or control the media in order to advance its own business interests.” Kennedy indicated that, in that case, the press organization would not be entitled to the ordinary constitutional presumptions: It would not have engaged in the “legitimate” or “bona fide” press activity that shields it from legal liability under statutes such as the federal campaign-finance laws or FARA. This is one of the reasons for Kennedy’s embrace of Justice Antonin Scalia’s position that the institutional press cannot claim constitutional privileges “beyond that of other speakers.”

Investigators for Jeff Bezos conclude mistress’ brother leaked private texts to Enquirer

"WASHINGTON — Private investigators working for Jeff Bezos have concluded that the brother of the Amazon CEO’s mistress leaked the couple’s intimate text messages to the National Enquirer, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Monday.

The person wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to AP on condition of anonymity"

snip:

"The brother, Michael Sanchez, is a supporter of President Donald Trump and an acquaintance of Trump allies Roger Stone and Carter Page. He is also the manager of his sister, Lauren Sanchez, a former TV anchor. The investigators have not said how they believe Michael Sanchez came into possession of his sister’s intimate messages.

Michael Sanchez did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on Monday. In a Jan. 31 tweet, he said without evidence that Bezos’ longtime security consultant, Gavin de Becker, who is leading the private investigation, “spreads fake, unhinged conservative conspiracy theories.”
