I was wondering if anyone has done an academic analysis of how The Washington Post has covered Amazon / Jess Bezos since he acquired it. Is it biased?
My quick experiment was interesting.
On August 28, 2018, we did a simple experiment. In Google News, we searched for “Amazon UK tax”. The result was a number of stories about the small amount of tax the company pays in the UK.
The same search in the Post brings up… nothing.
Update: Thanks to Paul Wiggins on Facebook for pointing out the major flaw in my little experiment – the coverage from Google News is from UK-based sources. When I search the NYTimes, I didn’t see any mention of the story either.
