- — Nicholas Kristof (@NickKristof)Mon, Aug 05 2013 21:58:34Mainstream news orgs have mostly been slow in adapting to the Web. That's the Bezos habitat, and he may have good ideas.

- The news is raising questions for some:
- — Fernando Pizarro (@fpizarro)Mon, Aug 05 2013 21:02:00How can one man (Bezos) literally own the entire @washingtonpost? I mean, I know Hearst and all that, but this is 2013, right?
- — Brian Stelter (@brianstelter)Mon, Aug 05 2013 21:23:04Bezos, in fact, will own a slew of itty-bitty local papers along with the WaPo. Wonder what he's thinking, if anything, about "hyperlocal."
