Drudge Mocks Bezos, WaPo For Refusing To Cover Amazon Tax Dodge Fine
Conservative icon regularly points out Amazon/WaPo coordination
Conservative media mogul Matt Drudge criticized Amazon owner Jeff Bezos on Twitter over The Washington Post’s blackout of the recent $300 million fine slapped on the online retailer in the EU.
Drudge tweeted a link to The Washington Post, which Bezos also owns, noting there was no coverage of Amazon’s multi-million dollar tax dodge fallout on the front page.
“$300 million fine against AMAZON for tax dodge in EU…nothing on Washington Post front page?” Drudge tweeted Wednesday.
“Democracy dies…with monopolistic Bezos!!”
$300M fine against AMAZON for tax dodge in EU… Nothing on http://washingtonpost.com front page? Democracy Dies… with monopolistic Bezos!!
The media icon frequently goes after Bezos for his monopolistic tendencies and his animosity towards President Trump.
This is a headline on the Drudge Report today:
“WASHPOST owner personally motivated in bloodsport after Trump threat of AMAZON monopoly breakup,” Drudge tweeted in May, referring to comments Trump made about Bezos during the 2016 campaign. “Follow the clicks!”
Drudge has suggested Bezos hates Trump partly because he has said for years Amazon has an “anti-trust” problem.
Donald J. Trump
The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!
“He thinks I’ll go after him for antitrust,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity last year. “Because he’s got a huge antitrust problem because he’s controlling so much, Amazon is controlling so much of what they are doing.”
“He’s using the Washington Post, which is peanuts, he’s using that for political purposes to save Amazon in terms of taxes and in terms of antitrust,” he added.
