Jeff Bezos Is Reaping What He Sowed

Jeff Bezos, the dude who started the behemoth called Amazon in his garage, got his shorts in a knot because the National Enquirer dared blackmail him! He wrote quite the piece over at Medium yesterday afternoon. Of course the sympathy and the laughter started rolling in. My take this mess? Jeff Bezos is reaping what he sowed.

Here is a man who built a multi-million dollar empire. He owns the Washington Post, is an inventor, and is decidedly a Democrat. However, none of that stopped him from making an exceptionally stupid choice. He had an affair and destroyed a 25 year marriage. We all knew the divorce was going to be ugly. Did we know it was going to get THIS ugly and this strange? No.

Bezos’ ode in Medium is quite something. He called out David Pecker, the owner of the National Enquirer. He calls out the reporters for daring to blackmail him. Why were they attempting to blackmail him?

Oh, I don’t know. Perhaps because he and his fling, sexted each other? Perhaps because she was stupid enough to show others what he sent? He’s like seriously happy about what he wrote and threw out there for all of us to see!

Again, the fact that Bezos published this at Medium instead of dealing with it through his attorneys is quite something.

Yes, I know. Many of our readers will want to go and read the whole thing. It’s right here. 

Needless to say, Twitter has been LITAF regarding this entire mess. As if yesterday wasn’t a stupendously laughable dumpster fire already because we’d all been discussing the ramifications of cow farts, Bezos had to have his own HOLD MY BEER! moment.

There are a several things that got my attention with this mess.

He had to do a BUT TRUMP ORANGEMANBAD! slam in the beginning.

“After Mr. Trump became president, he rewarded Mr. Pecker’s loyalty with a White House dinner to which the media executive brought a guest with important ties to the royals in Saudi Arabia. At the time, Mr. Pecker was pursuing business there while also hunting for financing for acquisitions…”

At least he quoted the NY Times and not his own publication for that one.

Then he slammed David Pecker for allowing his publications to …get political. I kid you not.

“American Media emphatically rejects any assertion that its reporting was instigated, dictated or influenced in any manner by external forces, political or otherwise.”

Of course, legitimate media have been challenging that assertion for a long time:

I literally busted out laughing at the above. Has he READ his own paper lately? The WaPo has ended up with egg on it’s face so damned many times in just the last 8 months, none of us can keep up! Among the top 10 of their flubs? Brett Kavanaugh and the Covington Boys.

Of course folks are having fun with all this mess.

REAL JOURNALIST DON’T DO THIS!

Be assured, no real journalists ever propose anything like what is happening here: I will not report embarrassing information about you if you do X for me. And if you don’t do X quickly, I will report the embarrassing information.

BULLSHIT. Bezos, your own damned paper, the Washington Post published scurrilous unfounded accusations about Brett Kavanaugh and celebrated it! They didn’t even bother to threaten people NOR did they bother to track down ummm FACTS.

YOUR paper hasn’t even issued an apology for what was done to Brett Kavanaugh and his family. And yet here you are lecturing the National Enquirer, which has long been known as a trashy gossip rag, about REAL journalism? The unmitigated gall is breathtaking here.

Here’s the biggest thing though.

Jeff Bezos has four children. 

Their dad decided to go 100% public about how much of a jackass he is and has been to them and to their mother. Can you imagine what they are dealing with right now??

Jeff Bezos is big man on campus because Amazon and stuff. That’s all fine and good.

But this? This makes him a very very small man in my opinion.

    Oh yes, WaPo and NYT have been asserting for a long time that they aren’t influenced by outside forces. Nobody believes them.
    Oh, wait… that wasn’t what you meant?

    published scurrilous unfounded accusations about Brett Kavanaugh and celebrated it!
    Yeah, but they didn’t blackmail Kavanaugh with them. See, he’s not mad about the dirt they dug up, he’s mad they threatened him with it.

    long been known as a trashy gossip rag
    Whoah! Stop right there! You saying Bat Boy isn’t REAL?! You better back that up, missy!

    Honestly? I have mostly avoided all of the “news” about Bezos’ divorce and relationships. Because I don’t care. That’s his life. I’ve never met him, don’t know him, and we aren’t neighbors or friends. So, it’s really none of my business. Unless and until his ego starts crowding my space.

    But, it certainly is interesting to watch people hoist on their own petard.

    Its really about power. Jeff Bezos isn’t particularly good-looking, he just has lots of $$ and power. This has gone to his head (the one on top) and the flirty girl mostly just wants to get ahead and partake in that power. Even if she gives Bezos the heave-ho, she’ll always be remembered as “Jeff Bezos'” lover and have the esteem and power that comes with that and probably a lot of money too.
    Don’t ever expect the media to accuse their allies of hypocrisy because to them, history started yesterday. Or even better, this morning

    I just happened to be going through my Thomas Sowell collection and came across ‘The Vision of The Anointed’. There is a quote taken from it (it was written 23 years ago and, like G. K. Chesterton, now more than 100 years ago, couldn’t be more relevant to the current times) that points to one of our most significant problems.
    That is, aside from moral relativism meaning everyone gets to decide how the universe ought to be decided based upon their personal, emotional preferences, i.e., there is no evil unless I say so and your good may be evil to me therefore you’re bad.
    Please bear with me as this is a series of quotes taken from the book and placed upon the rear jacket:
    “Dangers to a society may be moral without being immediate. One such danger is the prevailing social vision of our time – and the dogmatism with which the ideas, assumptions and attitudes behind that vision are held…What is importat about that vision are not only its particular assumptions and their corollaries, but also the fact that it is a ‘prevailing’ vision – which means that its assumptions are so much taken for granted by so many people, including so-called ‘thinking people’, that neither those assumptions nor their corollaries are generally confronted with demands for empirical evidence”
    Tell me that this is not at the heart of our journo activists and career policriminals.

    “Those who accept this vision are deemed to be not merely factually correct, but morally on a higher plane. Put differently, those who disagree with the prevailing vision are seen as being not merely in error, but in sin…These are not mere debating tactics. People are never more sincere than when they assume their own moral superiority…This can be a fatal talent, when it supplies the crucial insulation from reality behind many historic catastrophes.”

    How many of us have been stupefied by the absolute lack of any self-awareness or shame by some of these who are responding with radical, culture destroying hate to opposition to globalism?

    “In short, few have spent their entire lives outside the vision of the anointed, and virtually no one has been unaffected by it. Understanding that vision, its current impact and its future dangers, is the purpose of this book.”

    Reminder: 23 years ago. Since that time the tech billionaires and invasive intelligence have been suffering under this delusion of being ‘anointed’ and imposing it upon us.

    Critical thinking has been eliminated from our education and our media and even, sadly, the minds of those who have the guardianship of future generations.

    Bezos and other bubble dwellers have so much hubris and power as to make Attila the Hun and Nero look like playground bullies.
