Thanks to new media, Ted Leonsis no longer cares what Washington Post writes

"One of the great things about having all the D.C. sports owners in The (Washington) Post's auditorium for Tuesday's Business of Sports symposium thing was that they could all take shots at the media and we had to just sit there and smile and take it since we invited them there," Dan Steinberg writes, adding that Washington Wizards and Capitals Owner Ted Leonsis said social media has made him worry less about what the Post writes. 'I think this new media is like oxygen,' Leonsis said. 'Get used to it. I think that there is no more steering wheel in the hand of The Washington Post. I used to live in mortal fear about what you would write. Now, I don't care.'''
