Jeff Bezos, one of the world’s most powerful and richest men, is levelling severe allegations against the Saudis, and once again, he has nothing to show for them.
The media has been set ablaze by an “exclusive” report in The Guardian, a United Nations report, and even a documentary film, all dropped at once, alleging that Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) of Saudi Arabia is personally responsible for “hacking” into a personal phone belonging to Jeff Bezos, one of the world’s richest men and the owner of Amazon and The Washington Post.
The “bombshell” report in The Guardian, published Tuesday evening, was responsible for the word “Bezos” quickly becoming the number one trending U.S. Twitter search. The report alleged that Bin Salman, the heir to the throne of Saudi Arabia, infiltrated Bezos’s phone through sophisticated malware in text communications between the two on the messaging application WhatsApp. Hordes of legacy media journalists and commentators reacted, expressing extreme disdain for the Saudis, lashing out at Riyadh, and tearing into MBS. more
