The Washington Post was sold last week; to Jeff Bezos, (he's the CEO of Amazon), from the Graham family, one of the very last family-run newspapers in America.
The Post of course broke Watergate. Woodward and Bernstein. Way back in 1972.
One of my lasting memories of the 70's is "All The President's Men." I was a political junkie and the movie was just perfect. Always loved Robert Redford and he just flat out nailed Bob Woodward. Dustin Hoffman as Carl Bernstein was brilliant. And Jason Robards as Ben Bradlee was too good to be true.
Newspapers are a dying breed. That's unfortunate. Then again, from all in the know, Jeff Bezos wants to maintain the integrity of the Post and its still great legacy status not just in Washington, but beyond. I hope that's the case.
