For those not in the know about reporters, writers and journos as a whole, Ezra Klein is a pretty big deal. (Due to respect to Ron Burgundy, of course.) In fact, some would argue along the Beltway that his pet project, Wonkblog, is the sole reason Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com fame even had a paper to purchase in the first place.
According to several reports, Klein is about tell Bezos to place his position at WaPo on Amazon, because he is interested in seeking “an eight-figure investment” for a project that would be “a new website dedicated to explanatory journalism on a wide range of topics beyond political policy.”
Why can’t Daddy Warbucks pay eight figures to keep that guy?
