Donald Trump is reportedly exploring how he might buy The New York Times, reports Joe Hagan in New York Magazine.
"According to sources familiar with the situation, Trump has engaged in more than one meeting to discuss how he might buy the Grey Lady. Details of Trump’s strategy remain scant," Hagan writes. "And it seems unlikely, to say the least, that the Sulzberger family, which controls the company’s voting shares, would welcome his offer."
A representative for Trump declined to comment, as did The Times.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who founded the media company Bloomberg LP, has been rumored to be considering the newspaper as a "coveted trophy," the piece adds.
