Conspiracy theories usually make no sense. This one is no different.
I don’t read the National Enquirer. But my impression is that it’s not in the business of failing to publish stories about powerful men cheating on their wives. I could understand if if the Enquirer had failed to report on the Washington Post’s owner’s peccadillos. But conspiracy theories aren’t needed to explain why the Enquirer would have reported on the richest man in the world cheating on his wife with a news personality.
Jeff Bezos’ investigator is planning to accuse the National Enquirer of publishing its story about Bezos’ affair as a favor to investors from Saudi Arabia in an upcoming report, Vanity Fair reported on Monday.
So the theory here is that normally the Enquirer would have sat on this story, for no apparent reason, but only reluctantly ran the story on an affair that may well lead to the biggest divorce settlement in human history and dominated the headlines for weeks, as a favor to the Saudis?
You would have to be Jerry Nadler to believe something that makes so little sense.
You don’t need global conspiracy theories to explain why the Enquirer would have outed Bezos. But lefties have forgotten Occam’s Razor entirely. And can no longer reason, just pick through increasingly improbable conspiracy theories.
