"Breaking news: today's WSJ reports that the National Enquirer bought exclusive rights to a story from a model about her affair with Donald Trump--while he was married to Melania--and never published the story. The publisher is a close friend of Trump.   American Media agreed to pay $150,000 for the 1998 story. Quashing stories that way is known in the tabloid world as “catch and kill.”Ms. McDougal expected her story about Mr. Trump to be published, people familiar with the matter said. A contract reviewed by the Journal gave American Media exclusive rights to Ms. McDougal’s story forever, but didn’t obligate the company to publish it. It barred her from telling her story elsewhere. Ms. McDougal, who continued modeling after appearing in Playboy, told several of her friends she had a relationship for about 10 months with Mr. Trump, beginning in 2006 and lasting into 2007."
