Jeff Bezos, appearing on “CBS This Morning”, was asked by Charlie Rose, “You now own The Washington Post. Can you tell us where you’re taking it and what’s happening there?”

Bezos responded: “Well, you know, what we’re doing with the Post is we’re working on becoming the new paper of record, Charlie. We’ve always been a local paper, and just this month The Washington Post passed The New York Times in terms of number of viewers online. This is a gigantic accomplishment for the Post team. We’re just gonna keep after that. The reason that that’s working is because we have such a talented team at the Post. It’s all about quality journalism. And even here in the Internet age, in the 21st century, people really care about quality journalism.”

(The exchange about The Post’s goal was part of a longer interview.)
