Washington Post, Wealth Destroyer


Chief Executive magazine released its annual list of the top “wealth creators” and “wealth destroyers” by company CEO. Think of them as the Brahma and Shiva of true economic value. (Too Indian?) Tech CEOs like Steve Jobs, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, and Priceline’s Jeffrey Boyd all made the plus column. But on there, on the bottom of the destroyers, was a familiar media name among all those failing big shots like CVS, Kraft, and JCPenney: Donald Graham from the Washington Post. No wonder longtime staffers Robin Givhan and Howard Kurtz joined Newsweek and jumped ship for the Daily Beast. [TechCrunch]
