In the early 2000s, Amazon.com was known by many as the company which was destroying the book industry.
More recently, Amazon billionaire CEO, Jeff Bezos became the sole owner of the Washington Post, which he bought for a paltry $200M.
The Washington Post soon became a major leader in the worldwide coordinated propagation of “Russian Hacking” and “Fake News” memes, which erupted out of nowhere on the Monday following Thanksgiving weekend, aka “Black Monday” or outside the US the day known as the last Monday of November.
Suddenly, the New York Times, Hillary Clinton, Pope Francis, community college professors and the fake website, Prop Or Not, were pontificating about “Russian Hacking” and “Fake News” everywhere you looked.
Fake News was code for the Alternative Media, which, via WikiLeaks revelations of Hillary’s spectacular criminality had been instrumental in the upset victory of Donald Trump as President of the US. But when members of the Alternative Media and Trump, himself appropriated the term to report on the so-called legitimate media’s long history of propagating Fake News (in conjunction with the State Department and the CIA), even the Washington Post had to publish a story saying that the term had now lost all meaning.
Less well-known is that Jeff Bezos had also landed a $600M contract with the CIA to provide cloud web hosting and security for the CIA.
On March 2, 2017, Jon Rappoport, who originated the term “Fake News” way back in 2001, when he founded his blog, NoMoreFakeNews.com made a valid point when he wrote:
“Was Jeff Bezos’ cash purchase of the Washington Post a mere coincidence, placed next to his $600 million contract with the CIA, or did he buy the Post so he could offer the CIA an even tighter relationship with the number-one paper of record?”
