Five Notable Moments from Marty Baron’s Book Tour

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

“Collision of Power” by retired Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron has only been available for three days, but Baron’s promotional tour has unearthed what feels like enough revelations about Post owner Jeff Bezos, media coverage of former President Donald Trump and the state of journalism to fill another book.

In a wide-ranging Q&A with Seattle Times Save the Press Initiative editor Brier Dudley, Baron spoke about the effects of Bezos’ 2013 purchase of the Post and how it “instilled a lot of hope” in staff. The outlet succeeded in the years since, Baron said, because it “delivered something that people really valued” — it was at the forefront of holding Trump accountable for his words and actions.
