There is no telling how or why American Media Inc. has decided to print an almost 100-page glossy magazine that praises the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The edition, which contains no photo credits or critical comments about the Crown Prince or the Kingdom, was published in March 2018. This is the same month that MBS invited Jeff Bezos from Amazon for dinner a timeline created by UN human rights experts.
At this dinner on April 4th, MBS and Bezos exchanged numbers. On May 1st, a video file from the MBS account was sent to Bezos via WhatsApp. A research company found with "reasonable certainty" that the downloader of the video infected the Bezos phone with malware.
Eight months later, the tabloid National Enquirer – a feature of AMI – revealed Bezos & # 39; affair with Lauren Sanchez by publishing the intimate texts of the Amazon CEO in a January 2019 issue.
Bezos responded by producing one Blog post from February 2019 This indicated that he suspected that Saudi Arabia was involved in the acquirer's story and photos. The Saudi government no longer liked Bezos because the Washington Post, which owns Bezos, published works by Jamal Khashoggi and later investigated his murder.
At the present time, there is no clear connection between the malware supposedly installed on Bezos' phone and the publication of the photos and details of the affair on the tabloid. Other theories regarding Lauren Sanchez’s brother Michael as a possible source have also emerged.
However, questions remain as to why American Media Inc. would publish such a brilliant ode to the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia and its Crown Prince.
