Back in 2018 when Donald Trump was in the White House, a New York Times fact-check ruled that the Washington Post operated completely independent of its owner, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos. That was in response to remarks from Trump slamming Bezos and his company for the U.S. Postal Service losing billions shipping packages for Amazon while Bezos’ company made bank.

However, a recent tweet from a Times reporter has been spotted that calls the fact-check into question:

So Bezos has leveraged his ownership of the Post for personal reasons?

Well… that certainly changes the claims that Bezos operates completely independent from the paper he owns.

SHOCKAH!
