  • Hard News: A handful of battling billionaires,

    From a Wishington Post chat

    Roxanne Roberts :
    The amazing thing is that a six-month process remained a secret. It takes a lot to surprise a roomful of WaPo editors and reporters, and -- trust me -- everyone was stunned.

    Putting aside the irony of none of the journalists breaking the story at their own paper the six months certainly fits with the planning of the paywall.

    Don[ald Graham] will not have any offficial role with the paper; he'll be part of the other, as-of-yet unnamed company with the remaining corporate assets.

  • Hard News: A handful of battling billionaires,

    I was interested this acquistion followed so soon after the Washington Post introduced its paywall (with allowance of 20 free articles/month for registered but unsubsribed readers). I think the social good component was a factor for the Grahams Trust discounting the price.

  • Hard News: The Real Threat,

    Um, would that be A Taste of Armageddon when

    the crew of the USS Enterprise visits a planet whose people fight a computer simulated war with a neighboring enemy planet. The crew finds that although the war is fought via computer simulation, the citizens of each planet have to submit to real executions inside "disintegration booths" based on the results of simulated attacks

    and

    as the Enterprise breaks orbit, Fox

    [not that Fox]

    reports that the peace negotiations are going relatively well
