Jeff Bezos and His Media Allies Pushed a Fake Dossier Alleging Trump-Saudi Collusion to Interfere With the Results of His Dick-Pics
And Yet The Media Refuses Any Accountability for Even More Fake News

Flawless Male Logic suggests the alternate headline, Jeff Bezos and the Mystery of the Dirty Sanchez.

Byron York, who is definitely no cuck but who unfortunately works for the Cuck Emporium Washington Examiner:

Sometimes stories are simpler than they're made out to be. That appears to be the case with Jeff Bezos.

When the National Enquirer reported that Bezos, the Amazon founder who is the world's richest man, was having an extramarital affair and had sent racy texts, including photos of his penis, to his girlfriend, Bezos assembled a high-priced legal and PR team to mount an aggressive defense.

All of a sudden, sympathetic commentators began suggesting Bezos had been hacked. There was word that a "government entity" had gotten hold of the texts and photos. There was dark speculation of international intrigue, that Saudi Arabia might have used the Enquirer to target Bezos, who owns the Washington Post, in retaliation for the Post's coverage of the murder of the columnist and Saudi regime critic Jamal Khashoggi. And of course, President Trump played some sort of behind-the-scenes role.


Bezos orchestrated it all, using his security consultant to feed information to his newspaper, and also writing a much-discussed personal statement published on Medium.

He then quotes Lawrence O'Donnell, Chuck Todd, and Chris Cuomo breathlessly "reporting" (repeating dictated lines, really) about "hacking" and possible "government entities" and of course the specter of Trump lurking in background.

Turns out, it was Michael Sanchez, the gossipy brother of Jeff Bezos' lover (who herself was gossipy and indiscreet about the affair, as mistresses jonesing for a Level Up tend to be).

Now, the Wall Street Journal reports that Michael Sanchez, "a talent agent who has managed television pundits and reality-show judges" has also "long been a source for the Enquirer." And, according to the paper, Michael Sanchez sold the Bezos texts to the Enquirer for $200,000.

Imagine that. Mogul sends deeply private texts to gossipy L.A. girlfriend who has gossipy, fame-hungry brother, and somehow it gets out! No Saudis required.

So he hired a private dick to distract away from his public dick, and it turned out that distraction was fabricated fake news.

Jordan Shaechtel wants to know where the media's usual lecturing about Partisan Conspiracy Theories has suddenly gone off to.

“For reasons still to be better understood, the Saudi angle [the Washington Post's reporting on the death of their "reporter," Qatari government agent Jamal Kashoggi] seems to hit a particularly sensitive nerve,” Bezos said in promoting the evidence-free conspiracy theory that Saudi Arabia was involved in his personal affairs.

With each day that passed, Bezos appeared to become more and more convinced that the publicizing of his extramarital affair was the result of a Trump-Saudi-National Enquirer collusion conspiracy. They were all out to get him, for a variety of reasons, he concluded.

As recently as this past weekend, a private investigator hired by Mr. Bezos was telling reporters (including individuals who work for Bezos' Washington Post) that it was possible the Trump administration itself had "hacked" his text messages.

All three parties alleged in the Bezos conspiracy theory immediately and unequivocally rejected the idea that they were involved at all. Nonetheless, the government “hacking” and Trump-Saudi conspiracy theory set off a firestorm in the media, with unrelenting coverage on CNN and MSNBC, along with countless legacy media reporters and NeverTrump commentators parroting the completely unproven claims trotted out by the Bezos machine. Some commentators, such as CNN's Don Lemon, even celebrated the conspiratorial allegations as a "boss move."



BTW, Shaechtel's last paragraph there is loaded to links of leftist media and NeverTrump figures (but I repeat myself) spreading this evidence-free, motivated-reasoning conspiracy theory around.

The media and the NeverTrumpers are constantly preening that among the many, many, many things that make them better and smarter is their shared ability to see through the silly wack-a-doo conspiracy theories that appeal to Hobbits and Deplorables, and see the world as it really is.

They constantly run negative stories about the right's "conspiracy theories," both actual conspiracy theories without evidence (the Sandy Hook false flag nonsense) and legitimate questions that are deemed Unutterable because they contradict cherished leftist/NeverTrump narratives (such as Hillary's guilt in the email matter, or unresolved questions about the actual state of her health).

And yet they run with their own conspiracy theories with shameless abandon.

No preening from AllahPundit about his liberal palz' and NeverTrump buddies' eagerness to embrace this conspiracy theory?

Why does the preening suddenly stop, Old Buddy? Is it no fun to dunk on NeverTrump hobbits and media allies in the War on Trump?

No hectoring from Chuck Todd about his own willingness to spread fabricated #Fakenews on behalf of a political and media ally in the middle of a sex scandal?

No comment from "Media Analyst" Little Brian Stelter about CNN's eagerness to peddle fake news fabricated by owned-and-operated "investigators" looking to make a political impact?

Oh that's right -- 90% of CNN's content the past three years has been fake news fabricated by owned-and-operated "investigators" looking to make a political impact.

No questions about whether the Washington Post itself was encouraged, or thought that it would be appreciated, to pursue their owner's pet conspiracy theory? Or avoid reportage which would debunk the conspiracy theory?

No apologies? No accountability?

No simple explanation as to how this happened, how this slipped by people's internal mental gatekeepers?

No? Nothing at all?

Good thread below.

More: Schaechtel wrote another piece about this, containing even more media figures spreading Bezos' Fake Dossier on Trump-Saudi Collusion to Interfere in the Results of His Dick-Pics.

It ends thus:

By all accounts, Jeff Bezos invented a Trump-Pecker-Saudi collusion conspiracy theory out of thin air. Not even the world's richest man should be allowed to get away with spreading incriminating hoaxes. After all, "Democracy Dies in Darkness."
