Amazon to Buy Whole Foods Market

At the end of this post, please click the link to a New York Times story about the expected purchase of Whole Foods Market by Amazon.

While reading the article, we can only hope a particular disclosure made in passing won’t affect the Times’ coverage of this issue.

Recently, Whole Foods hired a new Chief Financial Officer.  She’s Gabrielle Sulzberger, who’s married to NY Times Chairman and Publisher Arthur O. Sulzberger.

There are many reasons to think carefully and be alert to background information that can influence news reports.  The reasons aren’t always as obvious as this, so we must be ready to dig for subtle details.
