Skip to comments.Media blackout of Jeff Bezos
Posted on 01/13/2019 9:21:04 PM PST by libh8er
One of the biggest and most salacious stories currently, involving the world's richest man and one of the most powerful and an upcoming mega billion dollar divorce - the kind the media loves to go on and on for weeks and months - and yet there is a not a mention of Bezos anywhere. Just out of curiosity I scanned the standard MSM sites :
abcnews.com - no mention
cbsnews.com - no mention
nbcnews.com - no mention
huffingtonpost.com - no mention
nytimes.com - no mention
wapo.com - no mention
seattletimes.com - no mention
latimes.com - no mention
chicagotribune.com - no mention
cnn.com has a tiny blip about Jeff and MacKenzie 'not having to worry about their divorce' and that's it.
Amazing. It's like an order went out to kill the story.
When it heats up, they will no longer be able to deep 6 it.
You can count on The Washington Post to ignore it.
Isnt the Enquirer covering it?
Enquirer also broke the John Edwards love child story that destroyed his political career. Should have won the Pulitzer for that.
Bezos is WaPo and anti-Trump. He’s got favored nation status - like China. The MSM doesn’t eat their own.
A picture is worth $50 billion.
Also, billions are at stake.
Bezos has control of Amazon right now. A big public break and big fight between him and his soon-to-be-ex may tank the stock price. They own 16% of the stock, so she’ll get 8% of the company. 70-80 billion.
Big media coverage and a big fight covering it could tank the stock 10-20%. That’s A couple hundred billion.
Newspapers are blogs for billionaires. Don’t expect them to shine the light on one of their own.
The new spin is that this was a hit job by Trump taking out Bezos because of his WaPo ownership. Trump did a tween tonight mocking Bezos and “Amazon Washington Post.” That’ll further that line.
An order did go out to kill the story, you silly person. :-)

So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post. Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!
Whod a thunk. The most wealthy man who controls every product in the world has power over the media and thus the rest of us?
Too bad Bill Cosby was a few billion short; he could be mid-comatose rape right now.
But, the Fake News Trump/Stormy payoff was all they cared about, for MONTHS on end.
LOL...hit job by Trump.
I think Bozos did his own ‘hit’ job. He has text pics to prove it.
Of course I know that :) But I still wanted to say it.
Apparently you don’t know how to Google
They're talking about the Trump "Jeff Bozo" tweet.
This might have been a true nuke.
They're calling the Washington Post "The BozoPost"...
I just went to the Google News site and did a search on Bezos and plenty articles came up
Jeff Bozo ... living proof that having a ton of money does nothing to make someone more attractive
May well not be a blackout, just nothing new to know yet. With that much money at stake, will likely be years before its legally sorted out. (Maybe not though, as even on half the wealth of the richest man in the world....no-one’s lifestyle will have to changed.)
Other than the announcement, the only thing I’ve heard reported is gossipy stuff.... (which is typical).
The news stories exist but the sites I mentioned aren't giving it coverage. Certainly not front page coverage.
Each network has on-air talent who have installed the Alexa device. Bozos has recordings of everybody. Nobody wants to chance the release of any incriminating recording.
