13. Bernie has walked back his statement, and wisely so.

I think that he's letting his anger at WaPo for reporting on the labor dispute in his campaign staff go a bit too far.

Calling Marty Baron a pawn of Bezos doesn't show much understanding of who Marty Baron is.

He's drawing some unflattering comparisons to Trump, who also tries to discredit WaPo...

The remark sounded an awful lot like the kind of criticism leveled by someone else.

"...[T]he failing New York Times and the Amazon Washington Post do nothing but write bad stories even on very positive achievements - and they will never change!" President Trump tweeted last year.

President Donald Trump has echoed similar criticism of The Post, using the hashtag #AmazonWashingtonPost in tweets and accusing the newspaper of furthering Amazon's corporate goals.

Sanders' comments drew comparisons to the rhetoric of President Donald Trump, who has linked what he sees as the Post's unfair coverage of his administration to Bezos, calling the newspaper a tax scam and a lobbying tool for the Amazon CEO and labeling it the “Amazon Washington Post.”



If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren
