Remarkable: Jeff Bezos publishes "the precise details” of AMI's "extortionate proposal” to him, including emails from Chief Content Officer Dylan Howard

Bezos says "numerous people have contacted our investigation team about their similar experiences with AMI, and how they needed to capitulate because, for example, their livelihoods were at stake" medium.com/@jeffreypbezos…
What’s remarkable is that Dylan Howard is still sending emails like this after everything that just transpired with Karen McDougal and Trump.

I mean, he just struck a deal with federal prosecutors LAST YEAR: wsj.com/articles/pecke…
The real news here is not that AMI tried to use incriminating photos of Bezos to get him to do what they want. That is what AMI does. 1/2

The news here is that Bezos has laid out AMI’s “catch-and-kill” tactic in greater and more explicit detail than we’ve seen before.

Luckily for him (and unluckily for AMI), he’s just rich enough to not be scared.

I would urge you to think of people much less wealthy than Bezos who found themselves in a similar situation with a tabloid -- they are left feeling scared, alone and like they have no other choice but to capitulate to the demands, whatever they are.

I have some people saying “Who cares? This only affects the rich & famous.”

To which I say: You are completely wrong.
