'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.
