Hunt on the Hunt

Bloomberg DC Bureau Chief Al Hunt, who has been making some of the smartest moves in Washington recently, sits down for an interview with US News & World Report.

Does he want to one-up his old publication, the Wall Street Journal?

    Nah. The interesting thing is that Bloomberg already devastated [WSJ parent company] Dow Jones. That happened 10 years ago. I have great affection for the Wall Street Journal–heck, I hired half the people in its Washington bureau. But would I rather us be ahead of the Wall Street Journal? Sure. But I’d also rather us be ahead of the New York Times, Reuters, Thomson, and the rest.
