Russell Simmons: ‘I should sue BusinessWeek. I should sue The Washington Post’

Russell Simmons got some bad press for his RushCard, a prepaid Visa card that is an alternative to the big bank cards. The outspoken businessman — who has his hands in music, fashion, TV and now finance — lashed out at BusinessWeek which Simmons claims got the card’s fee structure wrong in an article last June. That report, as many are, was picked up in several other publications. But seven months laster, Simmons is still sore about the story as he told mediabistro.com managing editor Donya Blaze in an interview a few days ago:

The entertainment entrepreneur opened up on a range of topics related to the media: his friendship with Fox News’s Roger Ailes, and what he thinks about the media in general. We talked with Simmons for about 50 minutes. We’ll be running the entire interview later this month across the mediabistro.com blog network.
