Synopsis >

The mega rich are buying newspapers as if they were ball clubs ... but these trophies are going for a song. Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos buying the storied Washington Post for $250 million. Boston Red Sox owner John Henry taking the Boston Globe for $70 million; Warren Buffett scooping up Media General's dailies for $142 million. And with the Koch brothers and Eli Broad on the hunt, newspapers are going back to the 19th century when print was the property of gilded industrialists.
