Yeah, if there ever was a company that needs to go down it is them. They decided at some point that political pursuits rather than the latest celeb gossip was in their purview, and an indication of just how broke our system actually is. I'll be damned if I will have some rag like the Enquirer directly interfering with both our press and our political process. There is strong evidence that they have done both.

If they messed with the wrong person, more power to that person. I'm not all that confident that they will see justice though, but we shall see.

The publisher of the National Enquirer, currently under attack by Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos, has been facing steep financial losses that have left the once-loyal keeper of Donald Trump’s secrets with more than $1 billion in debt and a negative net worth.

The closely held American Media Inc. -- led by the president’s longtime friend, David Pecker -- recorded a $31.5 million loss in the six months that ended Sept. 30, according to documents reviewed by Bloomberg. That marked an improvement over the previous year, but nonetheless brought the company’s total losses over the last 5 1/2 fiscal years to $256 million. AMI owed about $203 million more than its assets were worth.

Pecker's staff's careful attention to bumbling blackmail is typical of the level of thinking of Trump and all his associates. How such stooges finagled their way into power seems to be a concatenation of extraordinary bad luck for America.

Amazon Pulls Out of Planned New York City Headquarters
Amazon on Thursday canceled its plans to build an expansive corporate campus in New York City after facing an unexpectedly fierce backlash from some lawmakers and union leaders, who contended that a tech giant did not deserve nearly $3 billion in government incentives.

Or in other words: both companies are evil; Amazon's evilness though is in a different league than AMI's; both really should show way more corporate social responsibility.
