WASHINGTON POST: Saved!

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  THE WASHINGTON POST has been purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com for $250 million. Those who love newspapers rejoice today that one of the most iconic has been saved.  In hawking consumer goods and even B2B services like cloud storage, Bezos is a genius.  He goes for market share instead of the big bucks on each purchase.  And the big bucks come in bigger ways. Bezos is a hero.  Surely someone at WaPo will get the notion to have him run for U.S.
