Today we learn how true that is:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg will return to Bloomberg LP after he leaves City Hall at the end of the year, and will be focused particularly on the company's opinion site Bloomberg View, according to people familiar with the matter.The plans coincide with the intention to move the offices of Bloomberg View, which is now located in the same building as his philanthropy, into the main New York headquarters of Bloomberg LP, according to the people.A Bloomberg LP spokesman referred questions to the mayor's press secretary, who declined to comment. The expected move was reported by Capital New York.Bloomberg View was launched in 2011 and includes columnists such as Megan McArdle and Jeffrey Goldberg.Its launch was part of an expansion of Bloomberg LP's media properties to appeal to a broader audience beyond the financial professionals that subscribe to its terminal service. Other measures included the purchase and overhaul of BusinessWeek magazine, now called Bloomberg Businessweek, and heavy investments in a Bloomberg TV channel.
The mayor may be leaving office, but we are going to hear again and again about him and his programs and his views on education and obesity and gun control and global warming...
And you can bet the "journalists" at the various Bloomberg organizations will be making sure Bloomberg looks good in all of this.
