This story was written by Staci D. Kramer.

NYC Mayor Mchael Bloomberg couldn't have been more blunt about the notion that he would buy The New York Times Company, according to Reuters: "I am not going to go into the newspaper business. I am not a newspaper person." Bloomberg's remarks were in response to questions at a press conference about city matters.

Michael Wolff raised the idea in a Vanity Fair column; Newsweek upped the ante via unidentified sources suggesting it was being consider and the NY Post followed today with more sources who say some Ochs-Sulzberger family members would be interested in a "white knight."
