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:

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.
