  1. Sounds like Bezos had a lot to do with it. One reason to buy the Post is to get another window into a targeted audience. An audience with many facets, but one common one: they are consumers. They make a lot of incoming and they spend nearly all of it, or all of it, or more than all of it. Their supposed "facet" as semi-literate, semi-sophisticated readers of a "world-class" newspaper (choke-choke) is pretty much beside the Bezos point.
