Two weeks ago, fired New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson revealed that she and entrepreneur Steve Brill are planning to launch a start-up that will only publish “one big story a year.” She shared a few more confounding details this weekend, according to Poynter. Journalists will be paid about $100,000 to write stories longer than magazine articles but shorter than books. Subscribers will then receive “one perfect whale of a story” each month. If you have an idea that can only be expressed as a novella-length article, Abramson wants to hear from you.
Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals. He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is. By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard….
….during his hopeless “presidential” campaign. They will remain silent! The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these “clowns” because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all - and he will be right!
