Bezos bought the Washington Post in 2013
Bezos bought The Washington Post in 2013 for US$250 million. The New York Post reported that Bezos is trying to clear the way for Commander to buy from its owner Dan Snyder. Reportedly the Commanders, who have won three Super Bowls in 1983, 1988 and 1992, lifting the Lombardi Trophy, are viewed by their potential investors as a sleeping giant franchise in a key market. According to reports, Bezos is facing trouble as struggling Commanders owner Dan Snyder is still fuming about a series of newspaper reports that exposed the team’s toxic management culture. In this, the boss, including Snyder, was alleged to be responsible for sexual harassment.

Bezos has publicly stated that owning a newspaper was never his goal. Bezos bought the newspaper from its former owner Donald Graham in 2013 to ensure financial stability and promote online expansion. In addition, Bezos has repeatedly claimed that football is his favorite sport, but has not publicly claimed whether he intends to add a National Football League (NFL) team to his business. Despite expanding rapidly under Bezos with massive coverage, the paper turned loss in 2022 after several years of profits due to declining circulation at the end of the Trump administration.
