After QAnon went viral over social media, due to the spotlight it received during President Donald Trump's Make America Great Again rallies in Pennsylvania and Florida the mainstream media started attacking. Specifically The Washington Post took aim at QAnon and it's followers. Publishing titles such as, "There's a virus in Trumpland" caught the attention of QAnon. QAnon wrote, "Full attack mode. Washington Post leading?" referring to articles from the Washington Post.
Leaving links to three Washington Post articles: "QAnon: Meet a real-life believer in the Trump conspiracy theory that's bursting into view,"There's a virus in Trumpland," and "You'll never guess how the QAnon Conspiracy theorists feel about all this media coverage." QAnon questioned, "Who owns the Washington Post? Amazon? What ABC agency is heavily tied to Amazon?" QAnon asked about an ABC agency, meaning an alphabet agency. QAnon left behind links showing Amazon has ties to the CIA.
Amazon launched a "secret" service for the CIA, meaning it handles data that is classified at a "secret" level. In a $600 million dollar deal with Amazon and the CIA, Amazon offered the CIA a Top Secret Region since 2014. Since the owner of The Washington Post is Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon, connects the Washington Post to the CIA.
