Bloomberg is Mr. Conflict of Interests Galore, City Hall and Albany players are as well...
FYI, I don’t read The NY Times and NY Post because of their bias reporting especially on (now dethroned king) Mike so I depend on people to send me articles I need to post so thank you.
Laughable is the Joyce Purnick quote where she does contend it is a conflict of interest because her bio on Bloomberg was just one long laughable puff piece on Bloomberg and oops she some how got amnesia when writing about Steve Rattner and pay to play which by the way, Mike’s money manager Steve Rattner involved with NY pensions was a conflict of interest wasn’t it?
Most of the news reporting is because for instance the owners of the new york times and nydn are best friends with Steve Rattner and although Rupert Murdoch didn’t use Rattner as a money manager Murdoch is part of the billionaires boys club and they all seemed to have agreed to not report any voices of opposition to mayor Mike Bloomberg and to do their best to make sure he got his 3rd term to protect their real estate, financial and or tech deals.
Reminder in the book City for Sale: Ed Koch and the Betrayal of New York, it is reported that 50 news reporters handed Rupert Murdoch a signed petition for his biased news reporting in favor or Koch who was running for mayor his first time.
No group of news reporters would do such a courageous deed now.
Tom Robbins resigning from The Village Voice when Wayne Barrett was fired is proof there are some reporters brave enough to put it all on the line but not many are.
More just stay “on script” these days...not all but too many.
