Cohen was interviewed by Democracy Now! and BBC Radio on the purchase of the Washing Post by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. “The biggest issue facing American journalism in the last month or so has been the surveillance state, and these corporations that profit from the surveillance state, because 70 percent of the intelligence agencies’ budgets that come from the taxpayers is delivered to private contractors. Amazon just brought down a huge CIA contract to provide cloud services, and we know that that’s not the only one; they want more contracts,” Cohen said.
