When Amazon boss and billionaire Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post in 2013, he also had an ongoing $600 million contract to provide cloud computing services to the CIA. That meant the Washington Post, which already had a long history of cooperation with the CIA, renewed their wedding vows with the Agency and doubled down on the alliance.
By any reasonable standard of journalism, the Post should preface every article about the CIA, or article sourced from the CIA, with a conflict of interest admission: TAKE THIS PIECE WITH A FEW GIANT GRAINS OF SALT, BECAUSE OUR NEWSPAPER IS OWNED BY A MAN WHO HAS A HUGE CONTRACT TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO THE CIA.
Now Bezos and his company, Amazon, have bought Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Whole Foods is the premier retailer of “natural” foods in America.
Shares of Whole Foods soar, but other grocery sellers get crushed.

“They will always keep trying, just like when they bought out the Bee Research Company that identified one of the causes of CCDS to be Bt Corn.”
– Organic industry in shock as Whole Foods pushes new rating system that promotes chemical agriculture as better than organic (Natural News, June 16, 2015):
For some time, food chain Whole Foods Market and organic farmers have had a cooperative, mutual relationship. The retail grocer has enabled organic farmers to gain a sizable foothold in the food market at a time when Americans’ passion for healthier alternatives to the GMO-laden, processed foods market is rising.
As The New York Times reported, Whole Foods’ stores were more like “showcases” for organic products – fruits, vegetables and flowers that are labeled with the names of the farmers who grow them.

Organic Spies conducted an undercover hidden camera sting of Whole Foods Market for selling unlabeled GMO foods.
This film shows why Whole Foods has given no money to Proposition 37, the California ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods.
Whole Foods has sold unlabeled GMOs created by Monsanto for over a decade.
