Jeffrey P. Bezos Visits Washington Post to Meet With Editors And Others (The Washington Post / Style)
The Jeffrey P. Bezos era at The Washington Post had its symbolic beginning at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, when the high-tech magnate indulged in a decidedly low-tech ritual: striking a triangle to summon editors for their afternoon meeting. The chimes, amplified electronically across the Post’s historic newsroom, is a decades-old tradition. The Guardian Speaking to the Post before meeting staff for the first time on Tuesday, Bezos said his major contribution would be to offer his “point of view” to the paper’s leadership. He also said he would provide “runway,” which the Post described as “financial support over a lengthy period in which the management can experiment to find a profitable formula for delivering the news.” AllThingsD Just because Bezos is going to own the press doesn’t mean he has changed his approach to the press. When he speaks to journalists, he says nothing. FishbowlDC WaPo reporter Paul Farhi reports that Bezos has high hopes for the future of the paper in the coming years. Bezos’ quest for a new “golden era” at the Post must’ve come as a great relief to Farhi, as the newspaper is taking a financial nosedive, a nosedive that caused the sale of the organization to Bezos after being owned and operated by the Graham family for the past 80 years.
