“You’ll have heard the news, and many of you will greet it with a degree of apprehension.”
— Jeff Bezos, new owner of the Washington Post, in a letter to Post employees.

Shortly after news that Amazon’s Jeff Bezos purchased the Washington Post for $250 million, the paper’s website published a second piece: a letter from Bezos to the employees.

The letter begins:

You’ll have heard the news, and many of you will greet it with a degree of apprehension. When a single family owns a company for many decades, and when that family acts for all those decades in good faith, in a principled manner, in good times and in rough times, as stewards of important values – when that family has done such a good job – it is only natural to worry about change.
