A just-released proxy statement of Graham Holdings Co. (formerly The Washington Post Co.), provides some details on the compensation of Post Publisher Katharine Weymouth in relation to last year’s sale of the Post newspaper and some related properties to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. The filing notes that Weymouth received a bonus of $1.2 million last month “based on the achievement of pre-established 2013 performance goals.” Pursuant to the sale of the Post, notes the document, Weymouth also received in October nearly $1.5 million for meeting other goals.
