Welcome back to The Daily Courant, your afternoon dispatch of the latest reporting from Puck.
Today, Dylan Byers dissects a clutch of mediaworld plotlines: Bezos’s Washington Post-to-superyacht investment ratio and the paper’s shifting ambitions; updates on CNN’s Kaitlan Collins experiment; the Mudochs’ Fox endgame, and much more.
Then, below the fold: Bill Cohan taps his Morgan Stanley sources to handicap the James Gorman succession sweepstakes.
