Clinton hinted that more tech billionaires should buy media companies, the way Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post.
“I think Jeff Bezos saved the Washington Post,” Clinton said. “But newspapers, like the Post, the Times, others — still drive news … It was a very good use of his financial resources. Because now we have a very good newspaper again operating in Washington.”
As technology like artificial intelligence threatens to change the workforce, stabilizing the economy is a key theme for Democrats going forward, Clinton said. She also pointed to the market opportunity surrounding clean energy.
“I’m not going anywhere — I have a big stake in what’s happening to this country,” Clinton said. On the election, she added: “I don’t want it to happen to anyone else.”
