Digital News Mogul, Michael Bloomberg, Reads News through 8 Newspapers Daily
There is always money in news and media business and for New York’s current mayor, Michael Bloomberg, it is what he lives for. He is the founder of the digital news and data service, Bloomberg, and news is like breathing to him. According to Venture Beat, he reads eight newspapers a day. Talk about news consumption, he really does what his network does. But the surprising thing is that his network is of digital news, while he chooses the conventional media, the print media to consume the news.
However, he does read some news online through his iPad, but says he does not like relying on it. It is a rather strange statement coming out of a digital news mogul. Another irony in this story is that he said this during the recent All Things Digital’s tech conference in Rancho Palos Verdes in California through a live video feed. A lot of the people still stick to reading newspapers, the conventional and old time way, because they have a habit of being updated while taking their morning breakfast.
Some like news on television with a lot of chitter chatter of the experts that weigh in on everything going on. Others most-increasingly like to get their news through news feeds online. Getting it from one of the biggest digital news mogul is really a surprise. The reason that attracts him to newspapers is to get a chance at glancing all the news stories at once in a page. Well, this is something that digital news can also do. Take Google Reader, or any other aggregator for that matter.
