Another newspaper owned by a corporation. I'm sure this is going to end well.

Can't wait for it to become another CNBC infomercial.

Jeff Bezos bought the Post personally - Amazon did not buy it.

Ah true, but the underlying effect will be the same.

What did you imagine newspapers were owned by?

Not by massive corporations or their ceos.

Pretty much every newspaper is a corporation... that's the only legal entity that makes sense, given that it has to own a building, pay salaries, sue and be sued, etc.

Being owned by a massive non-media-related corporation would be concerning, but this is Bezos personally.

Bezos has a halo, but I don't believe in angels.

For journalism to be truth, it must remain independent.
