Default Investigators Focus on Another Trump Ally: The National Enquirer

President Trump has long had ties to the nation’s major media players. But his connections with the country’s largest tabloid publisher, American Media Inc., run deeper than most.

A former top executive of Mr. Trump’s casino business sits on A.M.I.’s four-member board of directors, and an adviser joined the media company after the election. The company’s chairman, David J. Pecker, is a close friend of the president’s.

And in the Trump era, A.M.I.’s flagship tabloid, The National Enquirer, has taken a decidedly political turn, regularly devoting covers to the president’s triumphs and travails with articles headlined “Trump’s Plan For World Peace!” and “Proof! FBI Plot to Impeach Trump!”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/11/u...can-media.html

Reading further this article talks about the investigation into the activities of the National Enquirer. I found it amusing, and appalling, that their defense rests on their belief that they are a news organization.

Color me shocked, shocked, that Enquirer readers would skew Trump-ward.

I admit before I realized that National Enquirer was Trumpland I was surprised that none of the headlines were negative towards him. Not one. Not once. But of course they were going after those hard hitting stories like "Hilary Clinton framed the Trump Family" That woman is so powerful but she still didn't get elected? Mindboggling.

It is all part of her master plan to take over the world by not running one of the most powerful countries in it.

And here I thought that it was Trump who was not running the country, or at least, the government.
