Roots Action Team: Under a CIA Cloud – Amazon, Bezos & Wash. Post

Tell the Washington Post to be honest with readers about a big conflict of interest.

The newspaper’s new owner Jeff Bezos is the founder and CEO of Amazon — which recently landed a $600 million contract with the CIA. [1]

The Post often does reporting on CIA activities. The coverage should include full disclosure that the owner of the Washington Post is also the main owner of Amazon — and Amazon is now gaining huge profits directly from the CIA.

A basic principle of journalism is to acknowledge when the owner of a media outlet has a major financial relationship with the subject of coverage.

And $600 million is certainly “major.” That’s more than twice as much as Bezos paid to buy the Post four months ago.

Tell the Washington Post that readers of its articles on the CIA have a right to know that the Post’s owner is making huge profits from the CIA.
