"But I will say this: I do think it's a mistake for any elected official to attack media and journalists".

At a sold-out Economic Club of Washington event, Bezos did not give any hints of whether Arlington has a leg up on other locations.

His private ownership of The Washington Post, which has published articles critical of the White House, has also put him at odds with US President Donald Trump.

"Well I do defend the Post", Bezos said.

Bezos added: "But it is really risky to demonize the media. It's risky to say they're the enemy of the people".

"There's been a movement away from band-aid solutions", said Ray Madoff, director of the Boston College Law School Forum on Philanthropy and the Public Good.

The Amazon founder, the world's wealthiest person, offered detail on his philanthropic goals, announcing the Bezos Day One Fund, which will begin with an initial $2 billion. We will build an organization to directly operate these preschools. "Frankly, philanthropy can't fund all of society's challenges".
