While some dismissed the $250 million deal as the flashy act of an Internet billionaire, others speculated about why Jeffrey Bezos, the founder of Amazon, would want a publishing company and what he would do next.

Bezos, 49, struck a deal to buy the venerable Washington broadsheet and other newspapers for $250 million.
