Details The recent sale of The Washington Post — for a fraction of its value just a few years ago — to the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, is emblematic of the changing landscape of journalism. The rise of Twitter as the go-to news source, and the proliferation of other innovative news delivery systems have changed the game forever. Visionaries discuss what it all means for the future of news.
