Bloomberg v Murdoch: Unsolicited Media Mogul Advice Showdown!

by evanmcmurry

Following Mike Bloomberg’s totally reasonable and reality-based prescription that if Obama listens to bi-partisan moderates in his second term he’ll realize that “hope” he was talking about four years ago, comes this assist from Bloomberg-after-twenty-years-in-a-brine Rupert Murdoch: “Mixed opinions about electoral effect of Sandy.
