In an interview, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said it would take years to find the forumla to bring about a new “golden era” at the Washington Post, which he will purchase for $250 million. Bezos dropped in at Post headquarters today and got a first-hand look at his fixer-upper.
Jeff Bezos–henceforth to be known as "El Jeffe"–just rang the bell summoning #wapo editors to their story conference. Applause ensued.

I think Mr. Jeff Bezos just rang the bell for our A1 meeting. The golden era begins here, folks.

Presumably, the bell was included in the quarter-billion purchase price, so why not?
Jeff Bezos just rang the cowbell for our afternoon news meeting. Think he is impressed by our technology.

Hearing Bezos laughed into intercom after ringing the bell. Seriously, this is what it's come to, Bezos-news-wise.
