Lessons Learned from the Trump Hush Money Trial: Former Publisher Reveals Tabloid Strategies

Former American Media Inc. chairman David Pecker testified in Donald Trump’s hush money case, detailing how he paid for Karen McDougal’s story to silence her about an alleged affair with Trump, leading Michael Cohen to ultimately pay for Stormy Daniels’ story. Pecker’s testimony laid the foundation for the Manhattan district attorney’s case against Trump, focusing on the payment to Daniels. Trump, who pleaded not guilty and denied the affairs, was upset when stories went public. Pecker’s cross-examination revealed that suppressing stories was standard practice at AMI, and he had similar arrangements with other celebrities to control narratives in the press.
