A few controversial pictures of  billionaire Jeff Bezos have sparked a war between him and the National Enquirer.

The National Enquirer is a newspaper publication specializing in celebrity gossip and entertainment news. They are allegedly responsible for using revealing photos to blackmail Bezos. Jeff Bezos himself wrote about his circumstances on Medium, an online newspaper. He publicly addressed his situation instead of agreeing to the terms.

The whole situation began after National Enquirer published private text messages which caused Jeff to launch an investigation to find out how they were obtained. Bezos was then wrote to by National Enquirer with those photos with the intention to get him to stop the investigation. Their publisher, American Media, inc. (AMI) have already been suspected of, and proven, using their publication for foul play in politics according to Variety.

“The National Enquirer was not being unethical because it’s their job to inform their readers and its what they do for a living.” States freshman Itzel Garcia about the ethics of the newspaper.

What Bezos publicly wrote online put pressure on AMI. They are launching an investigation of their own. The story written by The New York Times shares that AMI advocates their choice and say they did not act illegally. Along with agreeing that National Enquirer acted unethically, 7th grader, Karina commented, “I think they blackmailed him because since he is rich and is the founder of Amazon which is a really big online shopping site they probably wanted to make money off his activities to draw attention to their magazine.”.

According to Fox News, National Enquirer believes they acted lawfully and they are being eulogized for publishing such antics. There is much debate whether or not AMI acted ethically when they published the story so, the war goes on.
