It didn't take me long to go from finding it interesting that Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post to being surprised to learn that Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post.

I've never understood his place at the Post. I don't even know how to find Wonkblog on their website without a direct link. I'm surprised he's stayed there as long as he has.

Not surprising - the Post has been de-kleining for years.

I would like to see him do a site with Vox Media. I can see it being a good fit. They are based in DC, have some political roots but no political properties, and they have a great platform.

Fuck, this sounds insanely plausible. I should find out if this is happening.
