I believe The Washington Post Company (WPO) is well managed, shareholder-friendly, and has a sustainable presence. It is fairly valued now and an ideal company to hold long term.
The Washington Post Company was originally just a newspaper company but it has become much more than that. It seems that being substantially owned by giant conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) is having an impact on the company's business model as it becomes more and more of a diversified conglomerate by the year.
The company offers the following self-description:
The Washington Post Company is a diversified education and media company whose principal operations include educational services, newspaper print and online publishing, television broadcasting and cable television systems.
