Joshua M. Brown, a financial advisor at Ritholtz Wealth Management:
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who acquired WaPo four years ago, is on a ridiculous hot streak right now. His ecommerce giant is taking on as many verticals as you can think of – and winning. His newspaper is breaking stories about the President and the Russian miasma that surrounds his whole entourage nearly every day.
For how much longer will the President, who effectively directs the FTC, allow Bezos to hassle him with his newspaper while steamrolling over competitors in the corporate world from the other Washington? And what if some ambitious politician or state AG decides to beat him to it?
