when i first saw this article i was hoping to find a horrible thing that Amazon was doing, but i noticed that it wasn't really that they are doing something terrible, it is that they have a lot of power. with thousands of people shopping online, many of them turn to Amazon, because it is very easy to use and a lot of times there are many good products that people can buy. Amazon also went on to not only sell products, but also make their own. they also offer services such as watching movies. with millions of people shopping online, they become bigger and with more power everyday. a lot of people would prefer to shop online than to go to a store and buy things. the company has sold more than one of the biggest companies in the United States, Walmart. to conclude, Amazon is a growing company that will continue to grow and be worth more over the years, but also they are gaining a lot of money and power and who knows what they could try to do. this article doesn't seem biased, because it has a lot of facts and they are never saying that Amazon is a bad company. this article is reliable, because it has made research to argue their point.
