all i want from billionaire owners is transparency - ask them to put things like WaPo on a 2x2 of "hands-on, hands-off" and "run it like a business, run it like a hobby"

If Bezos wants to run it like a business, then i guess it really doesn't matter whether he could fund it 100x or not. These cuts might be short-sighted (to both his personal brand and stated societal goals) but relying on billionaires to fund news orgs out of pocket seems less than optimal too.
