Four of the big six publishers refuse to sell ebooks to libraries and the two that do sell to libraries either charge very high licensing fees or restrict lending (after 26 loans the ebook must be repurchased). This has nothing to do with Amazon who are only mentioned in reference to a bestseller list. Would you think the New York Times was to blame if the article had referenced their bestseller list instead?
