The salicious edits in this warfare will be covered elsewhere in the media, I want to look beyond when and where it all started.
The salicious parts are well covered by The Guardian and the content produced by Jeff Bezos in the last 24 hours ...
AMI, the owner of the National Enquirer, led by David Pecker, recently entered into an immunity deal with the Department of Justice related to their role in the so-called "Catch and Kill" process on behalf of President Trump and his election campaign. Mr. Pecker and his company have also been investigated for various actions they've taken on behalf of the Saudi Government.
And sometimes Mr. Pecker mixes it all together:
"After Mr. Trump became president, he rewarded Mr. Pecker's loyalty with a White House dinner to which the media executive brought a guest with important ties to the royals in Saudi Arabia. At the time, Mr. Pecker was pursuing business there while also hunting for financing for acquisitions..."

Jeff Bezos accuses National Enquirer owner of 'extortion and blackmail'
The Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, has accused the owner of the National Enquirer of "extortion and blackmail", alleging that lawyers for David Pecker threatened the tabloid would publish text messages and intimate images if Bezos didn't halt an investigation into how it had obtained those files.
Bezos, who is the world richest man and also owns the Washington Post, became the subject of tabloid fodder in January after he and his wife MacKenzie announced they were divorcing. Shortly after, the National Enquirer published "intimate text messages" revealing Bezos' relationship with Lauren Sanchez, a former tv anchor.
After the tabloid published his personal messages, Bezos retained private security consultant Gavin de Becker "to determine the motives for the many unusual actions taken by the Enquirer", he revealed in his blogpost.

Both Pecker and Trump have important indebtedness to the wealth of Saudi royals ...
Jeff Bezos' private investigator suspects the Amazon CEO's leaked text messages with his lover Lauren Sanchez may have been acquired by a 'government entity'.
Washington Post reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia said on MSNBC Thursday night: 'Gavin de Becker told us that he does not believe that Jeff Bezos's phone was hacked - he thinks it's possible that a government entity might have gotten a hold of his text messages.'
Bezos believes that reasons behind the National Enquirer outing his affair were 'politically motivated', and has hinted at the magazine owner David Pecker's ties with Saudi Arabia.
All of us should be aware of Israel's meddling in the internal political affairs of the U.S. as their most important benefactor. My perception has been for a long time the Israeli PM is the master and U.S. politicias are the puppets. I am convinced Bibi Netanyahu has played a crucial role behind the scenes to get a Republican candidate elected at a cost to the candidate of the Democrats to the detriment of the American people and beyond. A pact designed by devilish evil which was aligned with the self-interest of Russia's Putin. Costly for him, all the blame has been put at his doorstep ... the 21st century boogeyman or our enemy #1.
The leaked messages could be from any intelligence source or a combination - GCHQ-NSA-Mossad-BlackCube - the deep state working beyond the oversight of government and parliament.

Wooing Saudi Business, Tabloid Mogul Had a Powerful Friend: Trump | NY Times |
In July, David J. Pecker, the chairman of the company that owns The National Enquirer, visited his old friend President Trump at the White House.
The tabloid publisher took along a special guest, Kacy Grine, a French businessman who advises one of Saudi Arabia's richest men [Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal - Oui] and sometimes acts as an intermediary between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Western businesses.
The two men and other Pecker associates chatted with the president in the Oval Office and briefly met with Mr. Trump's son-in-law and Middle East envoy, Jared Kushner.
Mr. Pecker's company, American Media Inc., published a glossy magazine that is essentially a promotional brochure for Saudi Arabia and the crown prince.
