Washington Post: Readers Deserve Full Disclosure in Coverage of CIA

The Washington Post should 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.

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.
Background:
 Bloomberg News: Amazon Wins Ruling for $600 Million CIA Cloud Contract
Information Week: Amazon Wins Best Cloud in CIA Bake-Off
Washington Post: What Jeff Bezos Has to Say About Amazon’s CIA Contracts
InformationWeek: Amazon Again Beats IBM for CIA Cloud Contract
FAIR: Amazon, WikiLeaks, the Washington Post and the CIA


RootsAction co-founder Norman Solomon delivering the first batch of petitions -- signed by 30,000 people -- at the Washington Post headquarters in January 2014:

Tell the Washington Post that readers of its articles on the CIA have a right to know that the Post’s owner is in business with the CIA.
