Power 100: Marty Baron & Fred Ryan

by Editorial

Marty Baron, Executive Editor, Washington Post
Fred Ryan, Publisher, Washington Post

With a new, bottom-line- conscious owner and a new home in downtown Washington, the paper has taken Trump’s campaign against the media as a personal challenge, publishing one exclusive story after another. If Judge Roy Moore isn’t sitting in Washington today as the Republican senator from Alabama it’s largely because the Post uncovered the Trump-backed candidate’s troubling history with young women (a scoop that recently won it a Pulitzer Prize). The Post has also seen an upsurge in its digital subscriptions, having – at Bezos’ suggestion – put more resources into its website; and in 2018 will be profitable for the second straight year.
