Last night, New York Times editor and writer, Joyce Purnick, who has a book of media mogul-Mayor Michael Bloomberg coming out, appeared on NY1’s Inside City Hall. Political reporter Rita Nissan asked Purnick what she thought Bloomberg had gained by dragging out his Presidential ambitions. ”It made him a player that he might not have been,” answered Purnick. On Kevin Sheekey, the spirited Mayoral aide who held these ambitions aloft with delicious, reporter-friendly sound bytes, Purnick said, ”He’ll find something to keep him busy.” In closing, Nissan asked the veteran newspaper reporter if the media mogul-Mayor would have made a good President. ”Yes, I do, I do,” Purnick replied, emphatically.
