Is Bloomberg News still hiring Jessica Pressler? ‘We’re declining to comment’
My email to Bloomberg News:
“Is Jessica Pressler still joining Bloomberg News after being snookered by the high school student who claimed he made $72 million?
“Capital New York reported that she’s joining Bloomberg’s investigative unit; does Bloomberg have confidence in her investigative skills after this New York magazine fiasco?”
Bloomberg News spokesman Ty Trippet:
“Got your query passed to me. We’re declining to comment.”
