WashPost Owner Bezos: Trump's Attacks Not Presidential

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com and the owner of The Washington Post, said Wednesday that Donald Trump's attacks on the newspaper are out of line and not very presidential.

"That's not an appropriate way for a presidential candidate to behave," Bezos said during a technology event at the paper's headquarters. 

Trump has been on the attack ever since it became known that the Post has assigned 20 reporters to dig up everything they can about Trump, the presumptive Republican candidate for president.

Trump even accused Bezos last week of using the Post as a way to influence politicians not to tax Amazon "like they should be."

"It's critical that we be able to carefully examine our leaders," Bezos said Wednesday.

Executive editor Marty Baron said, "The Post has a long tradition of publishing thorough examinations of the major-party nominees for president. The decision to write a book on Donald Trump came entirely from the newsroom."
