Blackmail

“Bezos Accuses Tabloid of Blackmail,” The Wall Street Journal, February 8, 2019 A1.  Did the National Enquirer blackmail Jeff Bezos with compromising photos?  Is it okay to tell people not to search for the leaker?

Mr. Bezos published the correspondence from the National Enquirer, thereby destroying any value of the information to the alleged blackmailer.

What’s the value of Information?  How did Mr. Bezos’ emails get hacked (Governance/Compliance)?  Why was this photo ever taken?

How does blackmail differ from reporting?  Especially given the now-broken story of Mr. Bezos’ divorce?
