Jet.com Launches With The Goal To Rival Amazon

The new online shopping service Jet.com launches today, and the company is trying to take on the likes of Amazon and Walmart.

Jason Bellini of The Wall Street Journal joins Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss how the new online shopping club differs from other markets on the web.
