Sorry, Mr. Bezos, Democracy Dies in Darkness Isn’t the Way to Sell a Newspaper

When Amazon’s Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post, he changed the page one logo to:

The Washington Post

Democracy Dies in Darkness

In promoting the paper, the Post now is using its old logo:

The Washington Post

If you don’t get it, you don’t get it

The New York Times has long used “All the News That’s Fit to Print”

The Atlantic: OF NO PARTY OR CLIQUE

The Washingtonian: The Magazine Washington Lives By

The Chicago Tribune long used: The World’s Greatest Newspaper

USA Today: The Nation’s Newspaper

Detroit Free Press: On Guard Since 1831

Atlanta Journal: Covers Dixie Like the Dew

Scripps Newspapers:  Give light and the people will find their own way

Aspen Daily News: If you don’t want it printed, don’t let it happen

After the Post announced “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” a Huffington Post wit suggested it should use “The Night Is Dark and Full of Terrors.”
