Jeff Bezos bought the far-left Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million. He got took.
On Monday Jeff Bezos suggested that China may gain influence after Elon Musk’s Twitter purchase for $45 billion.
Amazon founder and executive chairman Jeff Bezos raised the specter of possible Chinese influence Monday, after Tesla founder and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk purchased Twitter for $44 billion earlier in the day.
On Twitter Monday, Bezos — reportedly the second-richest man in the world — responded to a tweet from New York Times reporter Mike Forsythe, outlining the links between China and Musk (reportedly the World’s Richest Man).
What a hypocrite.
Bezos must have forgotten that his far-left rag gets paid millions by the Chinese Communists to publish its propaganda!

And not surprisingly, there’s plenty of projection involved: Amazon Deleted Reviews of Chinese President’s Book Per CCP’s Demand.
UPDATE: China Daily paid US papers $19 million in advertising, printing. “China Daily, which is a Chinese state-owned English-language newspaper, is required by U.S. law to disclose its business dealings with the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), according to a report by Freedom House. The Chinese paper’s most recent filings were submitted on June 1 and include expenses from November 2016 to April 2020, the Daily Caller reported. The Justice Department records show that over the past four years, China Daily has paid the Washington Post over $4.6 million, and The Wall Street Journal almost $6 million, in advertising expenses. The state-run media outlet also paid The New York Times $50,000, Foreign Policy $240,000, The Des Moines Register $34,600, and CQ-Roll Call $76,000 for ads, according to the records.” (Emphasis mine.)
