Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos will acquire the Washington Post newspaper. Discuss here if you think this is a wise move on his part, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

It'll be interesting to see if he tries to keep it as a print newspaper or converts it to an all-online 'paper'.

Almost certain he won't keep it as a print paper, he is quoted as saying in the past that printed papers will have gone in 20 years. In the same way that Kindle became synonymous with e-books, I suspect he hopes to do something different with e-news. Already some news organisations are putting their web editions behind paywalls so there is obviously a line of thought that a profit can be made there, it just remains to be seen whether the content will justify any cost.
