Billionaire US entrepreneur Jeff Bezos is reportedly looking to sell The Washington Post to buy an American football team. A report in The New York Post has claimed that the Amazon founder is in the process of seeling the reputed newspaper to buy the Washington Commanders team.
Citing unnamed sources, the report said that chatter is growing about the sale of the newspaper after a leaked video purportedly showed publisher Fred Ryan disclosing layoff plans at an unruly town hall meeting last month. '

It added that the deal might be rocky for Bezos as Dan Snyder, the woner of the football team, is "sore over the storied newspaper’s series of exposes" alleging a toxic management culture at the team.

However, spokespersons for the newspaper and Bezos later told CNN that The Washington Post is not for sale.
