Jeff Bezos expects Washington Post to cover -- not cover for -- Amazon

News

It could get somewhat awkward at times for Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com and now the owner of the Washington Post. What's going to happen when something newsworthy happens with Amazon (like its business relationship with the CIA)?

Apparently, Bezos expects the Post will report on it, as he said in a meeting with the publication's reporters on Wednesday.

From the New York Times:

Toward the end of the session, Mr. Bezos addressed more difficult questions like the possible conflict of interest between The Post and Amazon’s contract for computer work with the Central Intelligence Agency. One employee, who attended the session but did not feel comfortable speaking on the record about his future owner, said that while Mr. Bezos “danced around” his answer, he added that he expected The Post to aggressively cover this relationship.
