    The media tabloids are good pals with the 2016 candidate

    Former Donald Trump allies like Fox News and NBC have been taking shots at the presidential hopeful since his bid began — but he has at least one staunch media ally.

    Industry insiders tell us Trump is “very close” with David Pecker, head of The National Enquirer and CEO and chairman of American Media, which means the outlet is unlikely to dig too deeply into his personal life as he campaigns.

    This is an about-face for the Enquirer, which broke scandals that spectacularly ended the presidential hopes of John Edwards and Gary Hart, among others.

    “Trump is a big friend of Pecker,” says our insider. “So no John Edwards-type investigations.”

    Our source says that with Trump “protected” by the tabloid, “Some of the staff are furious. Trump’s such fertile ground, and it drives them crazy to not only be staying away from it, but running puff pieces for him.”

    Trump and Pecker have certainly been known to scratch each other’s backs.

    Probably more like John McCain got in 08. Media wanted him to win his party's nomination. Then they turned on him and backed the Dem....

    McCain has been backing Dems plans since 86. Its why Republicans stayed home rather than vote for him.

    McCain- Feingold, McCain - Kennedy, McCain- Lieberman....

    the gop backed romney over mccain because he was promising the rich / 1% everything they wanted. You could say the voters dumped the gop on election day

    So The Daily News is saying that the Natinal Enquirer is the only rag capable of breaking a story? I never held them in such high esteem, I might have to reconsider.

    If Hillary liked Pecker, she would manipulate Pecker too.

    So Trump is pals with a lead guy at what is basically a gossip rag,and people try to denigrate the man for it.Meanwhile the Dems have had MSM in their corner for years on end but this is the big story.....Looks like President(I meant Mr) Trump has some folks on the Left panicking a little.

    You're late to the party grasshopper. You don't understand that the GOP and the Repubs are different groups within the party. Then add in Tea Party groups, Libertarian groups, and Conservative groups. The Repub Party is extraordinarily diverse.

    The GOP is Leadership. And not in tune with their own Party... They keep electing Establishment GOP candidates. Romney won the majority of Independents, actually. He had it won except for his own Base, people like me- either stayed home or voted third party..... Your use of 'the people' didn't vote against the GOP', his Base voted against the GOP

    I'm in the Constitution Party...

    The GOP backed Romney over McCain because it was "his turn"
    McCain had his turn in 2008 and lost, don't get another shot, ask Bob Dole

    The voters did not dump on the GOP, they alienated their base and ran another Dem Lite, thus they lost
    Run Jeb, lose again.
    What the GOP needs to figure out that if you have a choice of Dem or Dem lite, the conservative base stays home
    Bold colors stark differences is what wins elections

    That said, I really don't recall any bad press on Trump from over the years
    No tell all books about how he screwed someone over
    One would think that a book or two would have come out if he were actually that horrible a person

    I do remember reading in the National Enquirer that Trump owes for over due library books, hope this doesn't ruin his chances! Only wish they could find dirt on Hillary she is just so perfect for the job
