TRUMPenomics: Paranoid Attacks On Amazon Should Worry Everyone

On Fox News Friday, Sean Hannity asked Donald Trump about the Washington Post’s announcement that they’ve put 20 reporters to the task of digging up dirt on the presumptive nominee.
It’s a legitimate question, one that gets at the blatant partisan bias in the mainstream press. Republicans routinely are treated to far more scrutiny than Democrats.
How many reporters did the Post have digging into every aspect of Barack Obama’s life back in 2008? Or how many reporters have they assigned to Hillary Clinton’s various scandals? If it’s even one we’d be surprised.
But instead of focusing on media bias, Trump flew into a rage about Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, who also runs Amazon. Here’s what Trump said:
“This is owned as a toy by Jeff Bezos, who controls Amazon. Amazon is getting away with murder tax-wise. He’s using the Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don’t tax Amazon like they should be taxed. He’s worried about me, and I think he said that to somebody, it was in some article, where he thinks I would go after him for antitrust 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 bought this paper for practically nothing and he’s using that as a tool for political power against me and against other people, and I’ll tell you what, we can’t let him get away with it. He’s using that as a political instrument to try and stop antitrust, which he thinks I believe he’s antitrust, in other words, what he’s got is a monopoly, and he wants to make sure I don’t get in.”

I don't agree. You absolutely have to fire warning shots or these media outfits and moguls will run over top of you.
