Neighborhood curmudgeon Jack Shafer, now the last valuable property at Reuters, wondered yesterday whether anonymous sources at the New York Times were worse than the internet's top location for anxious teens, Yahoo! Answers, which felled one BuzzFeeD Benny (now just Benny). But obviously there's only one place to go to get an answer to that question.
One rival billionaire, who asked not to be identified because he did not like to discuss publicly the charity efforts of his peers, wondered why Mr. Bloomberg was not making larger contributions. "You want to meet your unique capabilities," this person said. "Giving away $2 billion in one shot — now that would meet Mike's capabilities."
Why give a "rival billionaire" (we could probably narrow this one's identity down pretty quickly) anonymity so not to piss of his rich friends? It's chill, baby. It's just the news. It doesn't have to be all so serious and like, on the record. Have a martini. It's on Bloomberg.
I guess we have our Yahoo! answer.
