Jeff Bezos and The Washington Post appear to be getting along swimmingly. The Amazon founder, who offered to buy the Post for $250 million dollars in early August, paid a visit to the paper's newsroom yesterday to talk with staffers. By all accounts, including that of The New York Times, the meeting appears to have gone well.

An editor at the Post, Jeffrey Leen, told The Times, "He was a big supporter of investigative reporting, which warmed my heart. He already has a very good grasp of our business. It was, all in all, a very impressive performance." Veteran reporter Bob Woodward had a private breakfast with Bezos yesterday and walked away with a similar impression.

Erik Wemple, a prolific blogger for The Post, livetweeted an afternoon session that Bezos held with the paper's staff.
