Amazon's Bezos Buying WaPo

As long as we are talking about newspapers, it is worth noting that Amazon's Jeff Bezos is buying the WaPo.  Paul Farhi has this story in, well, you know.

Does this portend any change in the WaPo's editorial policies regarding crime issues?  The paper has generally leaned toward the defense, but it hasn't been nearly as bad as the NYT, noted earlier today.

I went to the Washington Public Disclosure Commission website to see what causes and candidates Bezos has contributed to.  Yes on same-sex marriage.  Yes on charter schools.  No on a state income tax.  He contributed to Gary Locke and Christine Gregoire for governor, both Democrats.

Not too much enlightenment there for our issues.
