American Journalism is Going for Fire Sale Prices… “How important is it who is buying?”

A great segment from last night’s Rachel Maddow Show, about the sale of the Washington Post to Jeff Bezos (CEO and founder of Amazon), and also the Koch Brothers’ attempts to buy swathes of important, influential press outlets. This is a really important issue, and something that goes undiscussed too often.

Rachel Maddow has Dan Rather on the show for commentary.

More on this as and when information becomes available. [I’ll try to get a longer piece written over the next few days, too, time permitting.]
