The Wash­ing­ton Post

HWM (Malaysia) - - THINK -

Last year, Jeff Be­zos pur­chased the 137-yearold Wash­ing­ton Post daily news­pa­per for US$250 mil­lion. Be­zos has stated that the pur­chase was un­der his own name and is not re­lated to Ama­zon, but skep­tics will be quick to point out that the Post fre­quently cov­ers Ama­zon and its prod­ucts, and a di­rect link be­tween the two would ob­vi­ously not be ei­ther’s best in­ter­ests. A less ob­vi­ously link, on the other hand, could greatly ben­e­fit Ama­zon, as the Post is not only the most widely cir­cu­lated news­pa­per in the Wash­ing­ton area, but is also read across the U.S. with over 500,000 sub­scribers.
