WP publisher Graham wants to keep his paper in the family

It’s widely believed that Don Graham‘s niece Katharine Weymouth, the Washington Post’s advertising veep, is being groomed to take over. But to take over what? asks Marc Gunther. “No one,” says Graham (left), “can sit here and tell you how people are going to be getting news stories ten or 20 years from now.” || Post shareholder Warren Buffett on web journalism: “The ideal combination would be if the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Post had a joint website, and you couldn’t get any one individually. That, you could sell for a fair amount of money, and it would have one hell of a readership.”
