What will happen when Bilderberger Jeff Bezos takes over the Washington Post? *Updated W/ Video*

Patrick Henningsen
Activist Post

Amazon.com founder and Bilderberg member Jeff Bezos is all set to take control of the Washington Post from the Graham family who have owned the media publication for four generations.

Bezos paid $250 million for the Washington Post, along with the Express newspaper and several local weeklies bundled in.

Interestingly, the Bezos deal comes on the heals of another major media move, with the New York Times announcing that it’s selling its ownership in The Boston Globe. When the NYT purchased The Boston Globe in 1993 it had paid $1.1 billion for it. 20 years later, it’s had to dump it for a paltry $70 million.

So is Jeff Bezos betting on a dead horse? Some believe that both the Graham family and New York Times have seen the writing on the wall, and that traditional print titles are nothing but a dying breed – and a liability.

When Don Graham took over the helm of his family’s icon newspaper title in 1979, the Washington Post shared the responsibility of setting America’s news agenda with another media giant, The New York Times. But the old media paradigm has shifted drastically in the 21st century, where titles like the Post and Times have to compete with online content.

From wikipedia for what it's worth

According to Nick Hanauer (an early investor in Amazon) and "others who know [him]"[8], Bezos is described as a libertarian.[8] In July 2012, Bezos and his wife personally donated $2.5 million to pass a same-sex marriage referendum in Washington.[13] According to the web site Newsmeat.com, a web site that documents political donations made by "the powerful, rich, and famous" since 1977 (and donations higher than $200), Bezos has donated $16,000 to United States Democrats, $2,000 to United States Republicans, and $55,000 to special interests as of September 6, 2012.

So he is a libertarian who

wants Washington to mandate who you can marry?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't libertarians want Federal Government out of their lives?

I think

it's the opposite, Washington was mandating who can marry, I think he supported putting that up for a vote. I personally wouldn't want the government mandating any marriage and rather let the churches define it. I just posted the wikipedia entry so if you don't like it, take it up with them.

"don't libertarians want Federal Government out of their lives?" in theory....

Something is "up" in the world of Media.

Maybe the sucker punch to real liberty coming from the left?

I don't think

He bought it for the old, dead and dying horse side of things.. I think he bought it for it's potential to be a fast new race horse... the Washington Post website gets insane #'s in global traffic -

And I'm not sure that I have a problem with Bezos having gone to a Bilderberg meeting... I'd probably go to if given the invite just out of curiosity .. but I'd record it all ..and therefor even if I do become a billionaire .. probably not getting the invite!!

Most probably

old Jeff got the screws put to him the way Bill Gates did. All of a sudden an internet entrepreneur pays WAY over market price for a dying dinosaur of outdated technology? Just like Bill Gates got attacked by the DOJ on ridiculous charges and suddenly starts pouring $ into educational foundations? NO ONE is safe.

Was it overpriced though?

Seems to me he could sell off the assets not needed to run the website and he's looking pretty good with a Very well trafficked site cranking in the ad revenue... We'd be on another level if a liberty media website got that kind of traffic.
