WASHINGTON (AFP) – Mr Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post newspaper, warned on Thursday (Sept 13) that President Donald Trump’s attacks on the media are dangerous for the country.

Mr Bezos, during a question and answer session at a dinner hosted by the Economic Club of Washington, said Mr Trump’s attacks risk eroding protections and social norms important for democracy.

The article goes on to state the following:

“It’s dangerous to demonise the media,” Mr Bezos said. “It’s dangerous to call the media lowlifes. It’s dangerous to say they are the enemy of the people.”

He added that “we live in a society where it’s not just the laws of the land that protect us… it’s also the social norms that protect us. It works because we believe the words on that piece of paper.”

Mr Bezos said Mr Trump and other public figures should expect public and media scrutiny, which he called “healthy”.

The comments appeared to be the first direct, public rebuke of Mr Trump by Mr Bezos, a frequent target of attacks by the President.
