The outlet, which obtained a copy of the memo, reported that Bezos also revealed he wanted to “address directly” the allegations surrounding Lewis and Winnett.

Lewis – who took up his top role in January – was tasked with tackling the financial problems facing the newspaper as Buzbee launched, and is said to have revealed to staff that the Post’s involvement since 2020 had taken a 50% hit.

“The world is evolving quickly and we need to change as a company,” he continued. “With your support, we will do just that and lead this great institution into the future.”
