From the Daily News:
Bloomberg is the one with endorsements from 61 papers - not just the three major dailies, but also dozens of tiny neighborhood weeklies that thrived on Bloomberg advertising dollars.
"A representative of Mayor Bloomberg called me, and he made it very clear to me that I know how it's done. And I had to join the program, and the earlier I endorsed him, the more money I'd get," said Jerry Lippman, publisher of the Manhattan Jewish Sentinel and the Long Island Jewish World.
His papers endorsed Thompson, all 30,000 weekly copies of them.
GOOD FOR YOU!!
And now we know why Vicky couldn't wait to hop on board the Bloomberg express and also why the Queens Chronicle was so sensitive about being called on it.
Well, the cat's out of the bag now, even though we all knew it was in there to begin with.
