That the National Enquirer plays dirty? Of course, and they play for keeps. This isn’t kindergarten, children. This is war, and the various armies aren’t Middle Class mommies and daddies. You want to be the world’s most powerful and richest man? You’ve made enemies stomping your way to the top. No Corporate Giant got to where he is unless he played the same war games. Stop trying to spin a victim-based narrative.
He is trying to contain the fallout, knowing full-well what is on the line. He is going to have to pay through the nose in the divorce settlement, and golly, owning The Washington Post isn’t beguiling the public. He can even be pushed out, or suffer diminished power. The stakes are high.
You had an affair, and you were careless, Mr. Bezos. You gave the ammo and the gun to them. The consequences are on you. Money cannot always intimidate or impress everyone. You just thought you were too smart and rich to get caught.
Life is hard, even for billionaires.
