Jeff Bezos, the founder of the Amazon web store, accuses the American roddelblad National Enquirer and parent company American Media (AMI) of blackmail.
Bezos mentions in a blog post specifically the name of David Pecker, the chairman of AMI, that the National Enquirer publishes. The magazine has published previously an article about Bezos’ alleged relationship with the tv personality Lauren Sanchez.
“Instead of capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I decided to do exactly that to publish what I have sent, despite the personal cost and the embarrassment with which they threaten,” writes Bezos.
