Fetty WaPo

“I didn’t know anything about the newspaper business. But I did know something about the Internet.” That was Jeff Bezos explaining why he decided to purchase the Washington Post. And it turns out his knowledge of the Internet is paying off. Over the past couple months, WaPo has attracted more unique visitors that the NYT. I think the NYT paywall is probably a factor here. A ton of news traffic comes by way of sharing. And many people are more hesitant to share content that is behind a paywall. That said, WaPo has done a great job transitioning over the past year.

+ TNR: Amazon dominated nearly everything this year.
