Report: Saudis Call to Boycott Amazon Over Washington Post's Khashoggi Coverage

Boycott Amazon.

It’s what many Saudis unhappy with the Washington Post’s coverage of the killing of its journalist Jamal Khashoggi are calling for.

CNN reports the movement stems from their frustration with the paper.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns the paper.

Khashoggi was a columnist for the Washington Post and was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.
