  1. Amazon business model is to drive competitions out of business with its zero margin practice. Its main risk is DOJ’s antitrust division. So Jefff Bezos needs to own Washington politicians to ensure its monopoly model succeed. What better way to achieve that goal by controlling WP? Brilliant!

  2. I commented to friends yesterday that buying the WaPo was vastly cheaper, and much more reliable than hiring the folks on “K Street”. Great to see you see pretty much the same way.

    Jeff’s a very smart guy, has smart people working with and for him too. Contrary to what “JZ” has written, I cannot imagine any anti-trust risk should he seek to run the paper with “zero margin”. Remind me who has standing to complain? The NYT/WSJ?
