On Thursday we learned that the National Enquirer's parent company American Media Inc. reportedly paid a doorman at Donald Trump's old building to ensure he not speak about the rumor that the then-real estate mogul had fathered a child out of wedlock.

Though the doorman Sajudin was bought and paid for his silence, the Enquirer spent weeks on the story before deciding there wasn't anything to prove its authenticity and let Sajudin out of his contract after the 2016 election. The penalty for revealing the rumor to anyone else would subject Sajudin to a $1 million payment to the National Enquirer.

The story also mentioned Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen; Farrow reported that he spoke to two former AMI employees who "said they believed that Cohen was in close contact with AMI executives while the company's reporters were looking into Sajudin's story".

During the 2016 presidential campaign, the Enquirer published a string of allegations against Trump's rivals, such as stories claiming Democratic rival Hillary Clinton was a bisexual "secret sex freak" and was kept alive only by a "narcotics cocktail".

"When we realized we would be unable to publish, and other media outlets approached the source about his tale, we released Sajudin from the exclusivity clause that had accompanied his $30,000 payment, freeing him to tell his story to whomever he wanted", Howard told Radar. The payment and agreement with Sajudin were reportedly made in November 2015, as Trump stormed the campaign trail and headed toward the White House.

The publication ultimately spiked the story, according to The Associated Press.

"Unfortunately... Dino Sajudin is one fish that swam away", Howard told RadarOnline on Wednesday.

The AP also reports that four longtime Enquirer staffers directly familiar with the episode says they were told to stop investing the tip before they were able to confirm potentially promising reporting threads. Daniels had signed a non-disclosure agreement but has since sued to claim the agreement was void because Trump had not signed it.

The unnamed woman in question for her part has denied that story and stated that it just isn't true (we've heard that before).


"The source that this is coming from is unstable on every level", Benfatto said of her former husband of 14 years.

The tabloid made its first-ever endorsement by officially backing Trump for president.

In the tabloid world purchasing information is not uncommon. The Associated Press reports that embattled Trump attorney Michael Cohen was involved in the deal with Sajudin.

"If your intent is to get a story from the source, there's no upside to paying upfront", said George, who sometimes handled catch-and-kill contracts.

The methods AMI uses to hide headline-worthy stories should cause anyone thinking about reading their publications to reconsider their go-to choices to get real news.

Still, A.M.I. paid Sajudin tens of thousands of dollars in exchange for silence, in a manner that mirrors McDougal's experience.

Sajudin passed the polygraph, which tested how he learned of the rumour.

Sajudin, in a brief interview with The News outside his home in the Poconos, said he was struggling to deal with the sudden attention.
