Bezos sells fake news tools to Wa Post

Billionaire Jeff Bezos scored a double win this week as the Washington Post, the newspaper he bought in 2013, signed its biggest contract to date to sell web publishing tools mostly hosted by Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), the company he founded and runs.
The deal, with Los Angeles Times-parent tronc Inc (TRNC.O), is a boost for the Washington Post as it looks to branch out from its core news business against a backdrop of falling advertising revenue for traditional media.
The new tools will enable more widespread and clever fake news.
