Jeff Bezos has published a shocking letter from a national editor threatening to publish his nudes if he didn’t back off claims that the decision to out the billionaire’s affair with Lauren Sanchez was politically move.
In the email, American Media’s Chief Content Officer Dylan Howard comments that ‘with The Washington Post poised to publish unsubstantiated rumors of The National Enquirer’s initial report, I wanted to describe to you the photos obtained during our news gathering.’
He then goes on to claim that the Enquirer has a ‘d*** pic’ sent by Bezos and a photo that shows Sanchez’s ‘nether region.’
After listing the images, Howard wrote:
It would give no editor pleasure to send this email. I hope common sense can prevail – and quickly.
Bezos did respond quickly, by posting that letter and two others online.
The first email was sent on February 5, a proposed agreement was sent on February 6 and a third email was sent at an unknown date in response to a February 4 note sent by Bezos’ lawyer Marty Singer to Howard.
These emails were sent just a few months after American Media agreed to fully cooperate with a Department of Justice investigation involving President Trump under penalty of law.
‘These communications cement AMI’s long-earned reputation for weaponizing journalistic privileges, hiding behind important protections, and ignoring the tenets and purpose of true journalism,’ wrote Bezos.
He added that:
Of course I don’t want personal photos published, but I also won’t participate in their well-known practice of blackmail, political favors, political attacks, and corruption. I prefer to stand up, roll this log over, and see what crawls out.
Bezos has hired Gavin de Becker to look into who leaked the images and text messages he and Sanchez had exchanged over the past year.
In interviews with both The Daily Beast and The Washington Post, de Becker stated his belief that Sanchez’s brother Michael could have leaked the information.
President Trump meanwhile has declared very publicly that he stands by the Crown Prince. He tweeted saying:
Sorry to hear about the Jeff Bezos story,hopefully the paper will soon be places in better and more responsible hands
