If she named a price and Jeff just hit the bid, she could have gotten more for it.

Wouldn’t it be a nice thing and good for the readers inside the Beltway if the new ownership provided the subscribers with a more balanced approach to their journalism instead of the ultra liberal crap the Post provides? Might even make some money.

Bheckel… balanced approach would be nice but after Bezo’s prelude to Obama’s speech at Amazon the other day- where Amazon seems to be “giving” jobs for gov’t favors… I’d wait and see…

Unbelievable sanctimony even after losing the family fortune. FAIL.

I think Amazon is by far the best company online; everything they do is topnotch, so hopefully that will carry over to this

Yep, if I were a billionaire looking to avoid Olamo’s extreme taxes I would buy a loss entity to offset my tax liability, too. Of course, I wouldn’t have demanded that everyone else’s taxes be jack and then stick the shiv in those same people by locking in a dead ringer loss to avoid paying those higher taxes crammed down the throats of others. But then again I’m not a hypocrite pukegressive.

The decline in revenue and circulation at The Post since 2006 is so precipitious I doubt a new owner will change the trends. There are only two newspapers with increasing circulation: #1 the WSJ @ 2.4 million and the NYT @ 1.9 million. The Post is nowhere in terms of numbers, circulation has declined more than 14% in the past 3 years and is down below 480,000. Bezos purchase will change nothing.

Funny how JUST before Obamacare hits a 4th generation family business is sold off. Funny isn’t it? Another family owned business wrecked by liberals.
