Comments on: Bezos needs to reinvent a business model, not journalism http://blogs.reuters.com/anatole-kaletsky/2013/08/15/bezos-needs-to-reinvent-a-business-model-not-journalism/ Sat, 03 Jan 2015 16:42:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Ian_Kemmish http://blogs.reuters.com/anatole-kaletsky/2013/08/15/bezos-needs-to-reinvent-a-business-model-not-journalism/#comment-1127 Tue, 27 Aug 2013 08:14:29 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/anatole-kaletsky/?p=490#comment-1127 Last night, for the first time ever, I got spam from The Washington Post – sent to one of my single-use email addresses, which they (or the person they bought it from) could not possibly have obtained using entirely legal means. The spam tried to direct me to some kind of “research questionnaire” and also tried to promote some kind of payment card offered by Amazon.

The whole thing was reminiscent of the worst kind of cheap-and-nasty spam from the 1990’s. If this is Mr Bezos’s grand idea, then it cannot fail soon enough.

You has figured it out. Wonder if Mr. Bezos might read this article.. Wouldn’t do him any harm, would it?

We welcome Jeff Bezos and the Washington Post to use Prss.com for all their digital publications. Prss is in private beta with many of the major publishers and gearing up for its public launch. It supports new business models and helps to turn new distribution technology into an advantage.

For example, I would like to see “lied” in place of “misspoke” or “incorrectly reported”. I would like to see “concealed the fact” in place of “failed to disclose”, etc.

There is plenty of room for improvement though I have no reason to think that Bezos actually cares about journalistic integrity.
