Jeff Bezos deserves props for standing up to blackmail by The National Enquirer’s publisher, David Pecker, who threatened to print sexually explicit pictures and texts of the Amazon founder if he refused to issue a false statement that The Enquirer doesn’t have a pro-Trump political agenda.
As a publicly traded corporation, Amazon is obligated to maximize shareholder value.
That’s capitalism 101, and the author needs to confront our system, which doesn’t just make the obscene wealth of Jeff Bezos possible, but glorifies it as well.
Absolutely. There is a total disconnect between legality and morality that is imposed by capitalism über alles.
He’s a greedy pe**er too.
