This seems like good news: Jeff Bezos, the new owner of The Washington Post, went into the lions’ den to greet the news staff and came out a hero. By the Post’s own account, Bezos made a hit during his day of meetings.
Among his thoughts:
–“Don’t be boring.” (Good advice for a newspaper, but too often honored in the breach.)
–“What has been happening over the last several years can’t continue to happen,” he said. “If every year we cut the newsroom a little more and a little more and a little more, we know where that ends.”
— “All businesses need to be forever young.. . ”
The Bezos visit caused an explosion on Twitter, including many posts by Posties. See #bezospalooza
