‘We live in the oldest and greatest democracy in the world, with the strongest free speech protections in the world and it’s something that we are, I think, rightly proud of’

[excerpt]
BEZOS: "Most of the worlds population live in countries where if you criticize the leader you can go to jail. We live in the oldest and greatest democracy in the world, with the strongest free speech protections in the world and it’s something that we are, I think, rightly proud of. And it is, it’s critical that we are able to careful examine our leaders. We want a society where any of us any individual in this country, any organization if they choose to, can scrutinize, examine and criticize an elected official — especially a candidate for the highest office and the most powerful country on earth. That’s not an appropriate way for a presidential candidate to behave."
