President Trump has recently been attacking Amazon.com because it is owned by Jeff Bezos. There is no indication that Bezos has changed the editorial policy of the Washington post.

I have read the Post every day since I’ve moved to Washington as a law student and worked on the midnight  shift  of the Capitol police force. That happened a few months after President John F Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

I always felt that the Post was a liberal newspaper. The recent movie “The Post” told the story very well. The Washington Post heroically stood  up to the pressure of President Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal.

However,  I always respected the Post  editorial policy.  In addition to its liberal columnists it had two very fine conservative columnists.  One was  George Will and the other was Charles Krauthammer. There is no indication that Bezos has changed the editorial policy of the Post.  

However, this has not kept Trump from repeatedly attacking Amazon.com on Twitter.
