Newsweek was sold to a digital news company. The Boston Globe to John Henry, the owner of the Boston Red Sox. And the Washington Post went to Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.

Tom Allon: Who's A Minor Candidate?

11/26/2012

"The definition of chutzpah," Tom Allon tells us, "is when the New York Times tries to decide who's Jewish and who's not,  and who is a major or minor candidate."

Expect Allon to use lots of Yiddish and Hebrew words as he ramps up his campaign for mayor --  which we are reluctant to characterize for fear of being called chutzpahdik --  now that Allon is the only Jewish declared candidate in next year's race for City Hall. (Manhattan Beep Scott Stringer dropped out.)

Allon Plan: "I'll be one of the last two standing."
