It sure is interesting the Washington Post got this anonymous "scoop."

From Fox News:
Amazon is reconsidering opening part of its second headquarters in New York after fierce opposition from lawmakers, according to a new report.

The Washington Post, which is also owned by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, reported the Seattle-based tech giant is reconsidering the plan and has not leased or purchased any office space for the project. The report cited two people familiar with the company's thinking.

“The question is whether it’s worth it if the politicians in New York don’t want the project, especially with how people in Virginia and Nashville have been so welcoming,” one person familiar with the company’s plans told the Post.
He picked New York and Virginia over Nashville because they're two major centers of political power.
Speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not at liberty to discuss the plans publicly, the people said Amazon executives have had discussions inside the company to reassess the situation in New York and explore other locales.

The Post added that no specific plans to abandon New York have been made and it's possible Amazon could use them as a threat to pressure New York lawmakers.
"[C]ould use them as a threat..."

This article is Bezos using them as a threat.

The so-called "institution" that is the Washington Post is now nothing more than a propaganda organ for the world's richest man working to help him get better deals and pressure state governments to quash his opposition.
