Über dass Verhältnis von FOX News und Donald Trump
It was also thanks to some information he had gathered that Trump was able to do something that no other Republican has done before: take on Fox News. An odd bit of coincidence had given him a card to play against Fox founder Roger Ailes. In 2014 […] Ailes fired his longtime PR adviser Brian Lewis, accusing him [leaking information]. During Lewis’s severance negotiations, Lewis hired Judd Burstein, a powerhouse litigator, and claimed he had “bombs” that would destroy Ailes and Fox News. That’s when Trump got involved. […]
Burstein, it turned out, had worked for Trump briefly in the ’90s, and Ailes asked Trump to mediate. Trump ran the negotiations out of his office at Trump Tower. […] Fox paid Lewis millions to go away quietly, and Trump […] learned everything Lewis had planned to leak. If Ailes ever truly went to war against Trump, Trump would have the arsenal to launch a retaliatory strike.
In den USA scheint Erpressung ganz normal zu sein. Eine Parallele in Deutschland ist nur gerade nicht bewusst.
Und dann wird er Präsident und wird der Oberaufseher der NSA und die liefern ihm neues Material zum Erpressen? Schöne Aussichten.
