It Burns! It Burns Like Hell!

Jeff Bezos Replaces WaPo Publisher With Politico Co-Founder

Weymouth’s departure is the end of an era of Graham family involvement with the Post. Her great-grandfather bought the newspaper in the 1930s, and her uncle Donald Graham sold it to Bezos last August for $250 million.

She’ll be replaced by Frederick J. Ryan, the founding CEO of Politico and a former Reagan administration official.

I’ve bolded the most intriguing part of this announcement.

I wonder how the lefty WaPo newsroom hacks will like working for a “former Reagan official?”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I have to wonder just how many of those “lefty WaPo newsroom hacks” will actually stick around long enough to even try working for a “former Reagan official” –

    I’d imagine the resumes are, even now, flying thick and fast, winging Leftward from (now-temporarily) WaPo journaljismists’ e-mail addys, towards the deepest, dankest, rankest regions of the (now-measurably-less)Vast “Progressive” Smear-O-Sphere.

    The Intartoobs are no doubt “heating up” at places like al-Jazeera, al-Guardian, etc…
