Will Jeff Bezos apply Amazon philosophy to The Washington Post?

Amazon's C.E.O. Jeff Bezos says it's all about the customer. One goal is to sell "premium products at non-premium prices." In other words, sell tablets at low prices and reap the rewards when a late night television binger buys all five seasons of "Breaking Bad" at once.

This week, Amazon unveiled it's new Kindle Fire tablet. It is a sleeker model, but the price tag on the 7-inch tablet is what Bezos is betting will appeal to customers: $139.

But what about Bezos's latest move? His $250 million buy-in to the newspaper business?

CNN's Dan Simon sat down with Bezos to hear more on the Amazon philosophy, and where it might take The Washington Post.
