"Some question whether National Enquirer investigated Jeff Bezos to please Trump, but sources deny that Trump's animosity toward Bezos spurred the story"

Big investment of money, time, and energy to dig up dirt on someone a) who's seldom mentioned in celebrity mags, b) whose face is unknown to millions, BUT c) who just happens to own the Washington Post and is often attacked by POTUS because of its coverage.

But if Gawker still existed, and it had done the same investigation, then it would be praised as great journalism.

Gawker did FAR worse with people who were less public, but the media loved Gawker.
