The dark side of tabloid journalism exposed in David Pecker’s testimony at Trump trial

Former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker testified in Donald Trump’s hush money trial, revealing ethically questionable tactics used by his publication to defend the former president. Pecker admitted to paying for stories, fabricating negative stories about Trump’s opponents, and striking secretive deals to support political campaigns, all violations of journalism ethics. Pecker described how the Enquirer manipulated photos to create false narratives and paid sources for exclusive rights to stories. While some of these tactics were known, hearing Pecker explain them directly was shocking. Critics worry that such behavior damages the credibility of the entire journalism industry.
