PLAN B -- "Trump son-in-law makes approach on post-election TV start-up," Financial Times' Matthew Garrahan and James Fontanella-Khan: "Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has informally approached one of the media industry's top dealmakers about the prospect of setting up a Trump television network after the presidential election in November. ... Mr Kushner - an increasingly influential figure in the billionaire's presidential campaign - contacted Aryeh Bourkoff , the founder and chief executive of LionTree, a boutique investment bank, within the past couple of months, according to three people with knowledge of the matter." http://on.ft.com/2dIbnrX
POLICE REFORM POLARIZES 2017 -- New York Times's J. David Goodman: "As Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York turns toward his re-election fight next year, an issue that galvanized his first run - achieving significant police reform - is suddenly becoming a liability. Caught in the gap between his soaring rhetoric as an outsider candidate and the realities of leading a city with a hair-trigger sensitivity to crime, Mr. de Blasio is disappointing many who once supported him, in a community he can ill afford to lose: the black voters who propelled him to office. 'All I know is, in all our circles, folks have conversations and there's a buzz going around about the disappointment,' said Bertha Lewis, the former leader of Acorn who served on Mr. de Blasio's transition team in 2014, but has become a vocal critic. 'There's a growing enthusiasm gap.' Throughout the mayor's term, there have been opportunities for him to live up to his image and his promise as a would-be police reformer. Instead, those issues have become magnets for dissent." http://nyti.ms/2e9PmWC
-- De Blasio's press secretary @EricFPhillips: "Very Basic analysis. Good criminal justice activists will never be happy - & that's a good thing. Always more to do." http://bit.ly/2efRPAq

BLOOMBERG FOR SECRETARY OF STATE? -- L.A. Times's Kurtis Lee: "Michael Bloomberg opted against running for president this election cycle. But he still may have a political future. In a batch of newly leaked emails, purportedly from the Clinton campaign, that were posted online Saturday by WikiLeaks, an aide to Bloomberg confirmed to Hillary Clinton's aides in June 2015 that the former New York City mayor would not run for president. Neera Tanden, a longtime Clinton confidante, messaged Howard Wolfson, a senior advisor to Bloomberg, asking 'what is up' in regard to reports that the billionaire businessman might run for president. Wolfson called the reports 'laughable.''Is there something Mike Bloomberg would want to do in his life in an Admin? Is like Ambassador to China way too small,'replied Tanden, who heads the Center for American Progress, a liberal public policy and advocacy group in Washington. 'Secty of state Which ain't gonna happen,' wrote Wolfson. Still, Tanden took the statement seriously enough to forward the email to John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chairman.'Something to know for down the road,' she wrote." http://lat.ms/2dHa0d6
CUOMO WAS WARNED - Wall Street Journal's Mike Vilensky and Erica Orden: "Cuomo has sought to distance himself from many of the nine people charged in a federal corruption case last month, saying they weren't part of his inner circle and he didn't know the details of their business relationships. ... But a memo prepared for the governor in advance of a May 2014 campaign fundraiser-and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal-outlines the ties between Mr. Cuomo's administration and some of the alleged conspirators who attended the event. And it shows that his campaign sought to brief him explicitly on lobbyist Todd Howe's role as the event organizer and on Mr. Howe's representation of the attendees; Mr. Howe is now cooperating with the government. ...
"A pair of vetting documents sent by a senior aide, Linda Lacewell, to a group of the governor's top lieutenants a month before the event show she was concerned about the optics of taking money from companies awarded state contracts long before the heads of several of those companies were arrested on corruption charges. The emails vetted two contributions: one from Mr. Aiello and one from Mr. Ciminelli. In each, Ms. Lacewell itemized state contracts recently awarded to both men's companies. ... '[G]iven all this,' she wrote in the case of Mr. Aiello, 'I do not think it is problematic to take his money, would prefer that it be near end of filing as nano was very recent.'" http://on.wsj.com/2eficq2
-- Flashback to May 12: "While Cuomo has been downplaying his relationship with Todd Howe, a lobbyist at the center of a federal probe of his administration, records show that Howe was steering developers to contribute to the Cuomo campaign as recently as five months ago. Howe, then a lobbyist for a subsidiary of Whiteman, Osterman & Hanna, hosted a dinner gathering with Cuomo on Dec. 14, 2015 in a small upstairs room of the Fort Orange Club, a baronial brick retreat across the street from Whiteman's Albany offices and up the block from the state Capitol." http://politi.co/2efhidu
-- Flashback to June 1: Melissa DeRosa, the governor's chief of staff, said she has spent the past three years with Mr. Cuomo and told the WSJ she "never heard him talk to Todd Howe or about Todd Howe." "If he is in the inner circle, I don't know which inner circle it is," she said. http://on.wsj.com/2efgrJx
MORNING MEDIA, with POLITICO's Joe Pompeo:
-- "Trump's Clinton-accuser strategy finds a platform with Hannity, O'Reilly" -- POLITICO's Hadas Gold and Kelsey Sutton: "Within Fox News, there's a delineation between the staff who are considered journalists and those who are not, and Hannity has publicly said he is 'not a journalist.' But to the public, there's no special label to help distinguish. ... A sentiment familiar to newspaper reporters who find themselves answering for the work of opinion columnists and editorial writers sometimes bubbles to the surface at Fox: If partisans can find a friendly ear in the opinion and editorial pages, why bother submitting themselves to the scrutiny of actual reporters?" http://politi.co/2dpV45l
-- Shep Smith, Rupert Murdoch and the new Fox News -- HuffPost's Ryan Grim writes in his profile of the anchor this morning: "Shep's approach represents one potential path forward for Fox News -- undeniably conservative, but grounded in reality, observant of American traditions and democratic norms, and partisan only when a standpoint fully aligns with conservative and American values. Since the forced departure of Roger Ailes ... Rupert Murdoch's two sons, James and Lachlan, have taken a bigger role inside the network. If they get their way, some of the knuckle-dragging, opinion-heavy approach to politics may be less welcome at headquarters, clearing the way for journalists like Smith, Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly."
Murdoch to 'hire a lot more journalists': "In a more grounded Fox, Shep would take on a much greater role. In his most recent meeting with Murdoch, he asked where Murdoch felt the center of gravity was going to move post-Ailes, whether toward news or toward the opinion side. 'He said, '"I'm a newsman. I want to be the best news organization in America," Shep recalled. Murdoch, he said, has big plans. 'He wants to hire a lot more journalists, he wants to build us a massive new newsroom, he wants to make more commitments to places like this [studio], to hire reporters to work on beats, just enlarge our news-gathering,' Shep said. 'When the biggest boss, who controls everything, comes and says "That's what I want to do," that's the greatest news I've heard in years. And he didn't mention one thing about our opinion side.'" http://huff.to/2dZzIix

HAPPENING AT NOON -- "[A]t City Hall, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and Captain Mark Kelly, the co-founders of the gun violence prevention organization Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, will join Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, State Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh, and other city and state leaders for a press conference as part of Congresswoman Giffords' and Captain Kelly's 2016 Vocal Majority Tour, a 14-state, 42-day national bus tour that stretches until Election Day."
DE BLASIO, ON THE ROAD -- Lima (Ohio) News's Greg Sowinski: "New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made a 20-minute stop Sunday in Lima urging about 40 people at the Democratic Headquarters to get out and talk to people. De Blasio asked them to talk to people about voting for his friend, Hillary Clinton, for president. He said Ohio may decide the race. 'Lima and Allen County are the center of the universe. I come from a place we are very proud and we have our own swagger, but I say with humility you have something we don't have, and I say it with a certain envy, as well. You get to decide the future of the country,' de Blasio said." http://bit.ly/2e9RayJ
-- AND IN THE AIR -- Park Slope Patch: "NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, who billed himself during the election as a champion for the poor and an absolute anti-Bloomberg, was escorted either to or from Prospect Park early Friday evening by a helicopter belonging to the New York City Police Department, the department confirmed to Patch. Witnesses were confused to see a police helicopter landing in a baseball field near the southwest end of the park, just after 5 p.m." http://bit.ly/2dHaf83
FOLLOW THE MONEY- POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg: We're nearly halfway through the state's Medicaid reform program, and there is more than $565 million sitting in accounts waiting to be spent. That's more than two-thirds of what has been allocated by the federal government. Of the third that has been spent, 70 percent has gone to the organization's administrative functions or to a lead hospital. The unspent cash has Cuomo officials and appointed advocates concerned that some of the 25 organizations charged with implementing reform won't meet their goals. http://politi.co/2e7iE6Q
HOLLYWOOD ON THE HUDSON SEEKS TO EXPAND -- Eyeing tax credit renewal in 2019 -- Crain's Addie Moorfoot: "New York City is in the midst of an unprecedented TV production boom, one that contributed $8.7 billion to the local economy in 2015, an increase of more than $1.5 billion, or 21%, since 2011, according to the city. Employment in the motion picture and video industries grew by nearly 44% in New York City between 2009 and 2013, while the United States as a whole saw only a 6% increase, according to the state Department of Labor, with employment directly related to film and television reaching 130,000 people in 2012. That growth has put soundstages in short supply ... Established studios are furiously expanding throughout the five boroughs, while newcomers are converting industrial spaces in the city and in the northern suburbs into stages. ... They are pressing Cuomo to sign legislation that would give economic incentives to productions that film north of Rockland and Westchester counties and in Suffolk County. ... Looming over this building frenzy, however, is uncertainty over the state's $420 million film tax-credit program, which is universally seen as the catalyst of the TV boom but is set to expire in 2019. If the tax credit is not renewed, many insiders say the TV industry in New York will dry up ..." http://bit.ly/2dlALD4
THE PLAYWRIGHTS -- "Free Tickets for Playwrights Who Can't Afford the Theater," by NYT's Michael Paulson: "Pity the playwrights. Many of them make so little money, they can't afford tickets to plays. Now some of the nation's leading regional theaters, saying it is essential to the art form that writers see work by their colleagues and predecessors, have a solution: They will offer free last-minute seats to their shows. Theaters from Atlanta to Seattle have signed on, agreeing to make unsold tickets available, on the day of a performance, to student and professional writers who belong to the Dramatists Guild, a national association of about 7,000 playwrights, composers and lyricists... The initiative, which is underway at some theaters and is being announced this week, was organized by two Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights - Marsha Norman, co-director of the playwrights program at the Juilliard School, and Doug Wright, president of the Dramatists Guild of America - and Bruce Lazarus, executive director of Samuel French, a leading publisher of play scripts." http://nyti.ms/2e72oTm
EAT BEAT -- "Find Clinton and Trump-Themed Burgers at 'Merica NYC," by Eater's Patty Diez: "'Merica NYC, the American-themed East Village restaurant with impeccable timing, is [opened] this weekend inside the former Zerza space. The restaurant is the latest concept for Zach Neil ... On the menu's list of 'Merica Burgers is a 'T-Rump Mexi-Can Burger' that is a cow rump patty with half white American cheese and half Mexican pepper jack, separated by a wall of ingredients. Showing zero signs of partisanship, there is a Hillary Burger (basically a double bacon cheeseburger) known affectionately as the '100 calorie lie.' ... The space at 320 East Sixth Street ... 'Merica NYC will be open Tuesday through Sunday." http://bit.ly/2dWQ7lh
-- "How New York City can win the food cart war," by Nicole Gelinas of the Manhattan Institute for the Post: "The City Council has advanced a bill to more than double the number of food vendors in New York from the current 3,100. That's good, at least in theory: More food carts and trucks mean more lunch options for New Yorkers and tourists, and more opportunities for entrepreneurs. But it's only good in reality if the city enforces key laws to protect everyone's quality of life - and adds some new laws, too... And too many food trucks can create an unpleasant environment. Their generators, plus charcoal, are the least efficient way to create power and heat... And too many vendors block pedestrians - walk up Fifth Avenue and see how many ice-cream trucks are illegally blocking each crosswalk. [Manhattan Councilman Mark] Levine acknowledges these concerns, and notes that his bill would create a special vendor-enforcement squad to improve conditions a year before the city awards new permits in 2018... With everyone competing for the same sidewalk and street space, it's also a good opportunity to think harder about how we use the streets and sidewalks." http://nyp.st/2evWT3A
LONG READ -- "The Power Pastor: How A.R. Bernard Built a New York Megachurch," by NYT's Penelope Green: "One Saturday in mid-September, the Rev. A. R. Bernard took to the blue carpeted stage of the Christian Cultural Center, the 96,000-square-foot megachurch he built 16 years ago at the edge of Starrett City, in Brooklyn, with his usual accouterments: a smartphone, a bottle of water and a large glass marker board that he would soon cover in bullet points drawn from the playbooks of marketing specialists... It was the final morning of a weeklong women's conference, and the female audience of more than 1,000 took out their own devices and cued up their Bible apps, poised to take notes. When the pastor speaks, everyone takes notes, not just the younger congregants. His church, the largest in New York City, has long been considered a required stop on the way to City Hall and beyond. Having served as an adviser to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg for all three terms, Mr. Bernard counts the billionaire among his many powerful friends." http://nyti.ms/2e73RsV
REAL ESTATE, with POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg:
-"WeWork wants to become a real estate investor," by The Real Deal's Konrad Putzier: "WeWork is preparing to launch an investment vehicle to buy its own real estate properties, in a major strategic shift for the $16.9 billion co-working company. 'The moment WeWork comes into a building, you're creating value,' Michael Gross, the firm's vice chair, said at the Cornell Real Estate Conference Friday morning. The company is 'right now in the process of working on a vehicle' that would acquire buildings for WeWork and WeLive, Gross said, adding that such a vehicle could be created in partnership with outside investors. 'We're looking at multiple companies where we're looking at sale-leasebacks,' he said. 'They're looking to sell us buildings. We would come, refit it out and give it back to them.' WeWork has always touted its so-called 'asset-light' model: The firm doesn't actually buy any of the spaces it builds out and then rents to short-term office tenants, meaning it spends less on up-front capital investments for every dollar of revenue it makes." http://bit.ly/2e6u6RB
-"Airbnb releases new ads criticizing the hotel industry," by POLITICO New York's Addy Baird: "Airbnb is launching a new series of TV ads directly criticizing the hotel industry and its role in the political process. The ads, which come amid a larger struggle between the tech company and the hotel industry, are part of $1 million buy and will run in the New York City metro area. 'Independent voices are lining up to support Airbnb,' says one ad, which began running Friday. ... The campaign aims to undercut support for a bill passed by the state Assembly and Senate that would impose steep fines on individuals who list their homes on Airbnb for short-term (less than 30 day) rentals where the host is not present. ... ShareBetter, a coalition of elected officials and the New York Hotel Trades Council, argued against the characterization. 'The only entrenched interests being protected are Airbnb's army of illegal commercial operators who have consistently broken the law in order to steal tens of thousands of affordable housing units,' a spokesperson for the group said in an email Friday. 'Instead of following the law, Airbnb is following the money, and protecting serial lawbreakers who account for nearly 80 percent of their revenue.'" http://politico.pro/2dQKUuf
-"Manhattan on track to see negative office absorption for first time in 7 years: Colliers," by The Real Deal's Rich Bockmann: "For the first time in seven years, the Manhattan office market is set to have a negative absorption rate, as leasing activity through the third quarter hasn't been able to keep pace with additional supply. Absorption year-to-date sits at negative 2.2 million square feet, according to Colliers International's third-quarter office report. Unless the fourth quarter delivers some unexpected surprises, this will be the first year Manhattan sees negative absorption since 2009. ... By the third quarter of 2009, the absorption rate plunged to negative 9.09 million square feet as tenants shed space amid the financial crisis. This time around, the rate is negative due to additional supply, namely in places like the Far West Side and the Financial District." http://bit.ly/2dErcjl
