Michael Bloomberg Reads Eight Newspapers a Day

When Michael Bloomberg isn’t busy banning things, he’s reading newspapers. A lot of them. According to VentureBeat, Bloomberg said today that he reads eight newspapers per day, mainly because he trusts what their editors tell him qualifies as news. “The fallacy with that [reading news on the Internet] is I don’t know what I want to read,” said Bloomberg. “I want someone to tell me what to read.”

He also said that he prefers magazines the old fashioned way, despite having an iPad. “What I found was I was four and five weeks behind when it was on my tablet,” explained Bloomberg. “On the other hand, if it’s piled up beside my bed, the tyranny of that pile has forced me [to read].”

We’re guessing that means he won’t be outlawing print media in New York anytime soon, but really, you never know with this guy.
