POLITICO New York Playbook: DE BLASIO sticking with J'Ouvert -- GRETCHEN CARLSON settles Ailes suit -- TRUMP, CLINTON not attending 9/11 commemoration

09/07/2016 07:30 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Manhattan and Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, with Daniel Lippman and Addy Baird

STAYING WITH J'OUVERT -- De Blasio says predawn celebration will continue, somehow more safely -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday said the violence-plagued, overnight J'Ouvert celebration "will continue," despite the four shootings and two deaths that occurred during the event this weekend. "We're going to look at all options. J'Ouvert will continue. It's an event that is very important to the community," the mayor told reporters at NYPD headquarters. "But we're going to look at every conceivable way to make it safer." At one point, de Blasio suggested the city probably would be unable to stop the event, even if officials wanted to do so. "People are going to be celebrating. Our job is to control that and make it safe," he said.

NYT EDITORIAL: "Mayor Bill de Blasio needs to wake up and shut down the carnage of J'ouvert ... Mr. de Blasio does not seem up to the fight. ... The incoming police commissioner, James O'Neill, needs to insist that his officers will not be drawn again into a futile effort to protect neighborhoods from an event that is a magnet for gang violence, in the predawn dark, amid an estimated quarter-million revelers. ... J'ouvert needs to be shut down or altered so it can be policed effectively. Suggestions include starting it at daybreak, not the middle of the night, and screening the crowds, forbidding backpacks and deterring guns, the way Times Square is secured on New Year's Eve."

ON THIS DAY in 1916 -- The New York Giants beat the Brooklyn Dodgers 4-1 to launch their 26-game winning streak. The Mets have 24 games left in the regular season, and they've won their last four. Just sayin'. Look back on the Giants' streak with the Society for American Baseball Research:


-- HOT TICKET: Gretchen Carlson has settled her sexual harassment lawsuit against disgraced former Fox News chief Roger Ailes for $20 million. Veteran Fox News host Greta Van Susteren abruptly resigned yesterday amid reports that contract negotiations broke down and she had become disenfranchised by the hostile culture Ailes cultivated at the top rated cable news network. Carlson and Fox News star Megyn Kelly have both enlisted power publicists as they embark on the next chapters of their careers.

All of this should make for compelling conversation tomorrow night when Ailes biographer and New York magazine reporter Gabe Sherman, against whom Ailes is now mulling a lawsuit of his own, appears at the Columbia Journalism School for a discussion with professor Bill Grueskin. Columbia said yesterday that the event, to be held in the j-school's famed Pulitzer World Room, was sold out and that even press seating "is very limited."

-- THE VILLAGE VOICE, NOW MORE FASHIONABLE: The free weekly is touting what it says is its "first dedicated fashion issue" in 60 years (i.e. the amount of years the Voice has existed). On stands (in red newspaper boxes, actually) and online today, the issue corresponds with New York Fashion Week, which kicks off tomorrow and will be covered on The issue was guest-edited by former Michael Kors global creative director and style journalist Andrea Linett, with consultation from Joe Levy, who was named interim editor in chief of the Voice following the August 10 firing of Will Bourne.

Owner Barbey is trying to turn the Voice around, with a big redesign planned for next year. This might be stating the obvious, but fashion coverage is a ripe category for advertising, which the Voice needs more of. Indeed, Barbey has already made a push for those ad dollars with the creation of a style supplement. "Advertising will follow as we continue with more style coverage," a Voice rep told Morning Media. "We will roll out another Fashion issue in Spring 2017. Issues leading up to that time will contain some style coverage to thread the two issues as we intend to develop this category long term."

-- NUTSO NEWS OUT OF NEW JERSEY -- A Republican running for a local office in the southwest corner of the state (kind of another world altogether from the rest of New Jersey) has quashed his candidacy after making vile comments to Daily Beast reporter Olivia Nuzzi on social media:

Of course there's a Donald Trump tie-in. As my colleague Matt Friedman in POLITICO's New Jersey bureau reported yesterday: "On Monday, Nuzzi -- a New Jersey native -- shared a story about Donald Trump and ex-wife Marla Maples. It drew a response from a user named Mike Krawitz, who Nuzzi said has been harassing her on Facebook for over a year. 'Fuck. You. Olivia,' he wrote. 'I. Hope. Somebody. Rapes. You. Today. :)' A minute later, he wrote 'Hope. You. Get. Raped. By. A. Syrian. Refugee. :).'

Nuzzi: "We are now existing in the post-shame era of American politics, where the comments have come alive -- and they're running for office."

-- "Politico Co-Founder Jim VandeHei to Launch News Venture for Professionals ," by WSJ's Lukas I. Alpert: "Politico co-founder Jim VandeHei is preparing to unveil his next act: a media outlet targeting corporate executives and other professionals with a mix of business and political news. The soon-to-launch company secured about $10 million in financing late last week ... The investment round was led by Lerer Hippeau Ventures, the venture-capital firm that helped launch the Huffington Post and BuzzFeed. Comcast Corp.'s NBC News unit also is backing the startup and will serve as its media partner. 'Our talent will appear on NBC and MSNBC and we will collaborate on other projects,' Mr. VandeHei said. ...

"Backers include Emerson Collective, a social justice group headed by Laurene Powell Jobs, wife of Apple Inc.'s late co-founder Steve Jobs, Greycroft Partners and David and Katherine Bradley, owners of the Atlantic and Quartz. The publication is to launch in early 2017 and will focus on areas such as tech, health care and business news, and will include some political and media coverage ... Its business likely will bear similarities to the Politico Pro subscription model that Mr. VandeHei helped create at Politico, which he co-founded and was chief executive for a time." ... VandeHei's Medium post on the funding round

JOHN HARRIS on Medium, "Why Journalism" : "My head and heart both believe this: People who are exceptionally talented, disciplined, and passionate about the media business can have more fun and more impact than ever before. And, with some good breaks, they can do better financially than ever before. ... I was captivated at age 18 by what still strikes me as the essential psychic lure of journalism-something that, in candor, first attracted me for self-gratifying rather than altruistic reasons. As a reporter, one has a license to overcome natural reticence or conventional courtesies and ask people questions, to follow personal curiosity where it takes you. Plus it was, and is, great fun to see your byline atop a piece, to take pleasure in a well-turned phrase, to have people react to what you write, in admiration or even in anger."

TRUMP, CLINTON WON'T CAMPAIGN AT 9/11 COMMEMORATION - AP's Jonathan Lemire: "Neither of the two New Yorkers vying for the White House is expected to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11th terror attacks with a visit to ground zero. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are not slated to attend the annual commemoration at the World Trade Center on Sunday, a spokesman for the memorial told The Associated Press on Tuesday. 'We have not heard from either presidential candidate, nor the president of the United States, that they will be attending,' according to Michael Frazier of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. There is precedent for presidential candidates to visit the former ground zero on the anniversary of the terror attacks. In 2008, the last time an incumbent wasn't running for the White House, Barack Obama and John McCain set aside their political differences to make a joint appearance at the site in New York."

-- State Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox predicted that Trump will do well in New York.

TRANSPARENCY -- Lawmakers, activists push de Blasio to release police disciplinary info in Garner case -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: City lawmakers and activists called on Mayor Bill de Blasio to release a summary of disciplinary information about Daniel Pantaleo, the police officer involved in the death of Eric Garner, the Staten Island man who died while in a chokehold in 2014. "When a municipal employee engages in misconduct, it's subject to disclosure by the Conflict of Interest Board," said Councilman Ritchie Torres. "And so, the standard that applies to every other municipal employee should apply to New York City police officers, who have the power to kill."

Torres was one of several elected officials and police-reform groups - which included Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Council members Brad Lander, Carlos Menchaca, and Andy King, and the New York Civil Liberties Union, Communities United for Police Reform - who held a press conference outside City Hall announcing they had filed an amicus brief in the Garner case, urging the city to release the information. City officials had made police disciplinary information available for decades but stopped providing it in April, when they said they realized the disclosure violated state law. In a statement, Garner's mother, Gwen Carr, said, "De Blasio should be ashamed of himself" for appealing a court decision requiring him to release a summary of substantiated claims against Pantaleo. "It's a total double standard," she said. "As soon as our children are killed by the police, they release their records to criminalize them but we don't get any information about the officers who murdered them."

-- DN EDITORIAL -- "Bill de Blasio's NYPD cover-up: The mayor fights to keep Eric Garner cop's records out of public view": One and only one person is leading the fight to prevent the public from learning the disciplinary history of the police officer who choked Eric Garner to death: Mayor de Blasio. The mayor says he is bound by state law to conceal Officer Daniel Pantaleo's record before Garner's death - and he will surely say that he is similarly barred from revealing any punishment imposed on Pantaleo for the actions that led to Garner's death. De Blasio's description of the law is dead wrong, and, under his authority, city lawyers are waging a fight to impose an unprecedented and destructive level of secrecy on police discipline"

-- SI ADVANCE EDITORIAL: "[S]omebody in the NYPD's Legal Bureau had only recently determined that the department had been making the information public all this time in contravention of the law. ... [F]rankly, we hadn't noticed much of an outcry during the years that these NYPD disciplinary matters were made public as a matter of routine."

SCHNEIDERMAN OPENS EPIPEN INVESTIGATION - Bloomberg's Erik Larson and Jared S. Hopkins: "New York state's top cop opened an antitrust investigation into Mylan NV, saying the embattled drugmaker may have ripped off local school systems that purchased life-saving EpiPen shots for students. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said on Tuesday that a preliminary probe showed Mylan may have added anticompetitive terms to sales contracts with the schools. It's the latest fallout for the company after a 500 percent price hike triggered outrage by lawmakers and the public."

-- A bill proposed by Senator Kemp Hannon would provide access to EpiPen generics.

EAT BEAT -- "La Newyorkina to Open Its First Shop for Mexican Sweets," by NYT's Tejal Rao: "Fany Gerson is waiting on a delivery of garrafas from Mexico. Once they arrive, she'll use the wooden barrels lined with metal cylinders to make the ice cream called nieve de garrafa. Ms. Gerson, a pastry chef who grew up in Mexico City, is already known for her excellent paletas, which she sells at La Newyorkina stands across the city, as well as for Dough, the doughnut shop she founded in Brooklyn in 2010. La Newyorkina's first full-service shop, in Greenwich Village, will be her most ambitious project yet, and perhaps the only place in the city to find traditional nieve de garrafa made daily. Ms. Gerson plans to offer four to six flavors, both water- and dairy-based."

AT THE MUSEUM: "'Manus x Machina' Is Another Record Setter for the Metropolitan Museum," by Artnet's Ben Davis: "The Met announced today that 'Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology' notched in as its seventh most visited show of all time after closing over Labor Day weekend. More than three quarters of a million visitors-752,995 to be exact-turned out to see the Andrew Bolton-curated Costume Institute show dedicated to the use of technology in high fashion. The museum even offered extended hours on September 2-3, staying open until midnight to feed the hunger to see high-end design by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Iris van Herpen, and 'Coco' Chanel. ... The affair was sponsored by Apple, a first dip into cultural funding for the technology giant. The show received generally positive reviews... The news, however, does increasingly make it appear as if the Fashion Institute tail is wagging the Met Museum dog."

TECHNICALITIES -- Apple's iPhone 7 event happening today, from The Verge's Jacob Kastrenakes: "Apple will hold its... big event [today,] when it's expected to unveil new iPhones and updated Apple Watches... This'll be the fifth year straight that Apple has held an early September event to announce new products. As usual, one of those should be the next iPhone. This new generation is believed to be extremely similar to last year's model, with only minor visual differences - such as fewer antenna lines - and one big drawback: the removal of its headphone jack. On the plus side, the new models are expected to be more water resistant, with the larger phone reported to have a dual camera system for taking better photos. Apple may finally do away with the 16GB entry model and move up to a 32GB model as well." -- MORE DETAILS on what to expect from today's event from Kastrenakes at The Verge:

HAPPENING TODAY -- "Veterans and Gold Star Families to hold press conference in front of Trump Tower before 'Commander in Chief Forum.'": "[A]t 11AM ET, in front of Trump Tower in NYC, veterans and Gold Star families will hold a press conference regarding Donald Trump's unfitness to be Commander in Chief. A 'Commander in Chief' forum for the major party candidates will be held later that evening, and this group will make clear that Donald Trump is not fit to serve. The group will include: A Gold Star wife who was ripped off by Trump University; two Gold Star Mothers; a Purple Heart recipient and double-amputee who uses Veterans Affairs care; a Muslim Veteran; and, a Hispanic Veteran."

REAL ESTATE, with POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg:

-"Revamped Madison Avenue office building lands first tenant," by Crain's Daniel Geiger: "Law firm Hogan Lovells is negotiating to become the first tenant at 390 Madison Ave., a vacant office building that is in the process of being dramatically overhauled. The firm is in talks to take more than 200,000 square feet at the nearly 900,000-square-foot property, according to sources. Owners Clarion Partners and the New York State Common Retirement Fund are upgrading the building so it can compete with newly constructed office space. A spokesman for Hogan Lovells did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The property's renovation is set to be completed by early next year, a time frame that appears to coincide with the the expiration of Hogan Lovells' current lease at 875 Third Ave., where it occupies about 110,000 square feet, according to real estate database Costar."

-Airbnb ads for Cuomo veto, by POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: Lee lives in Ozone Park, has cancer and rents out his home on Airbnb to help pay his medical bills. Diego lives in a book-lined apartment Inwood and hosts on Airbnb to help pay for his studies at Columbia University. Both are featured in a new, multimedia ad campaign Airbnb is launching Wednesday morning to persuade Gov. Andrew Cuomo to veto a bill that would levy steep fines on Airbnb hosts who advertise their apartments online in violation of the state's housing laws. The short-term rental of apartments in multi-family buildings has, since 2010, been illegal unless the host is also on-site. The bill in question, which the state Legislature passed in June, would levy fines of up to $7,500 on hosts who advertise rentals in multi-family buildings in violation of the law. Cuomo has yet to indicate whether he will sign the bill or veto it.

-"When Restaurants Hit the Road," by Wall Street Journal's Charles Passy: "The hot new culinary accessory in New York restaurants may be a moving truck. That is certainly how Giuseppe Bruno sees it. The chef and owner of Sistina, he has spent much of the past summer relocating his contemporary Italian restaurant from its longtime home on Second Avenue to East 81st Street, about a block away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. ... Today, as restaurants face the end of their long-term leases, they often face rent increases as high as 300%. That leads many to question if it makes sense to stay in place or find a new home, particularly if there is one better suited to their changing needs."
