Washington Post editor says Bernie Sanders favoring 'conspiracy theory' by linking coverage to Amazon, Jeff BezosAt a Monday town hall, Sanders suggested that some critical Washington Post coverage of his campaign was linked to his own criticism of Amazon.

Iraq Wilayah - Baghdad 📰 | 22 Rafidi Mushrikin Killed and Injured in Explosive Device Detonations in Baghdad Get rid of the trash, if they do not go along with fake media today, they need to be thrown out. We need more fake media, Media Creates Truth. Too bad we can’t demote the POTUS for tweets that represent a serious lapse in judgement.
Joke should have been fired Editors can be demoted for serious lapses in judgement, not presidents. Oh well, it happens in the world's largest democracy, in the smallest one, in the most free country, or in others less free, too. Congressional investigators achieve the capabilities of working liberation and the ID permit provides access to the newspaper's capabilities. Politicians burn the treaty paper for deliberation.
racism at NYT?!!?
