With a daily subscription to The Washington Post, I was an outlier in my first-year college dorm. I found its content more interesting than textbooks on which I perhaps should have focused. Then, I didn’t appreciate the courage of owner Katharine Graham, perfectly profiled by Meryl Streep in “The Post.”
Current owner Jeff Bezos’ innovative strategy and success – online readership has more than doubled – was profiled in the Columbia Journalism Review.
Last year, The Post unveiled its new slogan, “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” Here’s hoping The Post’s and journalism’s ability to shed light into our government is never snuffed.
