SCHUMER ANNOUNCES OPPOSITION TO IRAN DEAL-Times' Jennifer Steinhauer and Jonathan Weisman: "Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York and the most influential Jewish voice in Congress, said Thursday night that he will oppose President Obama's deal to limit Iran's nuclear program. 'Advocates on both sides have strong cases for their point of view that cannot simply be dismissed,' Mr. Schumer said in a lengthy statement. 'This has made evaluating the agreement a difficult and deliberate endeavor, and after deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval.' With his decision, Mr. Schumer - who has spent the last several weeks meeting with Mr. Obama and other officials and experts like Wendy R. Sherman, the deal's chief negotiator, and the former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, and carrying a dog-eared copy of the agreement in his briefcase - paves the way for other Democrats on the fence to join Republicans in showing their disapproval."

--Gillibrand announced earlier Thursday that she was backing the deal: Schumer's move comes shortly after Senator Kirsten Gillibrand became the first high-ranking New York congressional Democrat to back President Obama's proposed nuclear deal with Iran, saying it would help result in a more peaceful Middle East.

JON STEWART SIGNS OFF -- Cameos, The Boss and 'bullshit' -- Politico Media's Alex Weprin: It took Jon Stewart 16 years to find his "moment of Zen." It could have been his Goodfellas-inspired set piece introducing the show's staff. Or his monologue on the topic of "Bullshit." There was Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performing, at Stewart's request, "Land of Hope and Dreams,' segueing into "Born to Run," while the crew and cast of the show danced on the set ...

Still, Stewart seemed most zen when he was behind the "Daily Show" desk, where he was always in control. On Thursday night, his final night behind that desk, he was (mostly) in control. "This show isn't ending, we are merely taking a small pause in the conversation. a conversation which, by the way, I have hogged," he said in his final comments behind the desk.

-- If there was a moment that was classic Stewart, something that epitomized his tenure on the late night program, it was his monologue on "bullshit." "Whenever something is titled 'freedom,' 'family,' 'fairness,' 'health' or 'America,' take a good healthy long sniff. Chances are it is manufactured in a facility that contains traces of bullshit," he said, citing computer license agreements and the Dodd-Frank bill, which at at least six inches tall he placed on his desk for comedic effect. "The best defense against bullshit is vigilance, so if you smell something, say something."

That was Stewart's message to Trevor Noah, and to whoever wants to follow him in taking on the political and media establishment. There will always be bullshit, the question is whether there will be someone with a voice clear enough to call it what it is.

DE BLASIO SAGS -- Politico New York's Azi Paybarah: Just 33 percent of city voters think quality of life in the city is "good" or "very good," according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today. According to Quinnipiac, it's the lowest percentage ever measured by the poll on the quality of life question. The poll comes as Mayor Bill de Blasio is struggling with a rise in homelessness and perception that gun violence is on the rise, despite overall crime rates remaining at historically low levels.

The poll of 1,108 voters, conducted between July 30 and August 4 with a 2.9 percent margin of error, also showed only 35 percent of Democratic voters viewed the quality of life in New York City as "very good" or "good." Among white voters, the figure is 44 percent; among black voters-the constituency that gives de Blasio his highest approval ratings-the figure is just 26 percent; among Hispanic voters, it's 18 percent. Forty-five percent of all voters said the quality of life in New York City was "fair" (a metric that can be interpreted differently).

-- The stark racial divide seen in de Blasio's job approval ratings was also echoed in voters' attitudes toward the New York Police Department. Fifty-three percent of voters overall approve of the job done by the NYPD, and 41 percent disapprove. Among white voters, 72 percent approve of the NYPD's job performance, and 21 percent disapprove. Among black voters, only 35 percent approve and 61 percent disapprove. Hispanic voters also disapprove of the NYPD's job performance, with 40 percent approving and 56 percent disapproving. READ THE CROSSTABS:

-- NYT headline: "New Poll Shows Mayor de Blasio's Support Has Eroded"

-- News headline: "Most New Yorkers unhappier than ever with quality of life in the city, poll shows"

-- WSJNY headline: "New Yorkers Worried About Crime, Homelessness: Poll"

CHALLENGING DE BLASIO -- The Real Deal's Hiten Samtani: "Don Peebles, real estate mogul and head of the Peebles Corp., is giving 'strong consideration' to challenging Mayor Bill de Blasio in the Democratic primary in 2017. During an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox News Thursday, Peebles said de Blasio hasn't done enough to lift New Yorkers out of poverty. 'The mayor is supposed to represent all constituents,' he said, adding that de Blasio had contributed to an antagonistic environment in the city. ... De Blasio is facing the worst approval rating of his tenure, with a new poll showing that 47 percent of New York City voters believe he doesn't deserve to stay in office."

CLINTON TALKS TO SHARPTON, WOOS BLACK VOTERS -- Politico New York's Dana Rubinstein: Nearly all of the 17 Republicans running for president have "either actively sought to limit the right to vote in their state or supported the efforts to limit the right to vote,' she said. On Al Sharpton's "Keepin' It Real" radio show, Clinton argued that Republican efforts, like requiring voter IDs at the polls, are "nakedly partisan" and serve only "to limit the electorate" in the Republicans' favor. Republicans base their argument for voter identification on allegations of endemic voter fraud, something Clinton described as "just not true."

-- Clinton's choice of interlocutor was unsurprising. Clinton is hoping to replicate President Obama's success with women, younger voters, and voters of color. That's a tall order. '[B]lack leaders concede it will be nearly impossible for Clinton to replicate the level of turnout Obama's candidacy generated among this core demographic-a group of voters central to the national coalition necessary for a Democrat to win the White House,' noted a recent National Journal article. 'So she'll need to coax them to the polls by honing specific messages about policies relevant to the black community, something her team says she's preparing to unveil.'"

#PATAKIWATCH-POLITICO New York's Bill Mahoney: Former three-term New York governor George Pataki, who also served two years in the state Senate, eight in the Assembly, and four as Peekskill's mayor, introduced himself at Thursday's "undercard" debate for the Republican presidential nomination as a candidate who is "not a career politician." Pataki repeatedly said he passed "the most conservative sweeping policy changes in any state in America."

Many New York observers would dispute the repeated claim that the state was a bastion of conservative idealism during Pataki's dozen years in office, from 1995-2006. True, state government was more right-leaning during his administration than at most other points during the past half-century. But the leading voices from that side of the spectrum frequently viewed Pataki as a disappointment. On Thursday, however, the former governor took more conservative positions on issues like abortion than he did while running for office in New York.

-- Politico's Eli Stokols' headline: "Carly Fiorina shines - but will it matter? The former tech exec steals the show at the undercard. So what?"

WHITE HOUSE DEPARTURE LOUNGE -- "It is ... the last day for Jessica Schumer ... [who has served] in the White House for the last five years, the last two of them as chief of staff of the Council of Economic Advisers, where she has combined economics, strategy, management, and a deep commitment to promoting the middle class (sound familiar?). She is returning to Brooklyn to be chief of staff of the Robin Hood Foundation, dedicated to fighting poverty in New York City."

PALACE INTRIGUE -- GABE SHERMAN on, "The Trump Campaign Has Descended Into Civil War - Even Ivanka Has Gotten Involved": "At Trump Tower, rival staff members are vying to exert control over the campaign in a power struggle that's every bit as vitriolic as Trump himself. The battle lines are drawn between the longtime aides who have advised Trump for years and the new hires who have joined the staff in recent months. ... The conflict between the old guard and the new began in January when Trump hired a brash 40-year-old Republican operative named Corey Lewandowski to serve as campaign manager."

-- "I Overdosed on Donald Trump: What I learned from 24 hours of mainlining the breakout 2016 candidate," by Adam Wren on Politico: "From 3:30 p.m. on [a recent] Saturday to a little past 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, I spent nearly 16 hours trapped in a ... $625 spa guestroom inside the Trump hotel; listened to close to 10 hours of three Trump audiobooks; ... streamed hours of the Trump-hosted NBC show 'The Apprentice' ... This, all while sometimes wearing a paisley Trump Collection tie."

--JONATHAN KARL, "Trump Once Proposed the Biggest Tax Hike Ever": "The year was 1999 and Trump was toying with the idea of running for President as a third party candidate. The idea ... was to impose a one-time tax of 14.25 percent on every American worth more than $10 million and raise exactly enough money to pay off the debt. Trump himself would have had to pay more than $700 million."

ATTACKING BLOOMBERG -- "NRA targets 'candidate' Bloomberg in new ad campaign," by CNN's Mark Preston: "The National Rifle Association launch[ed] a $1 million ad campaign Thursday accusing former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg of using his personal fortune to try and strip people of their individual rights and freedoms. ... The 30-second TV commercial shows workers setting up a presidential announcement event with signs proclaiming 'Bloomberg for President.' ... Howard Wolfson ... dismissed the NRA commercial. 'We love the spot ... We are thinking of doubling their buy and running it in full.'"

MEDIA MORNING --"Bloomberg Editor Appoints [FT DC bureau chief Megan Murphy as] New D.C. Bureau Chief In Hope For 'New Beginning,'" by HuffPost's Michael Calderone: "Murphy will report to senior executive editor Marty Schenker, who will move from New York to Washington to oversee global coverage of government, politics and economics. In the memo, Bloomberg editor in chief John Micklethwait said the company's 'priority in Washington is to get the whole bureau to work as one team.'"

--"The New York Times Passes One Million Digital Subscriber Milestone" - "less than four-and-a-half years after launching its pay model. This number is in addition to its 1.1 million print-and-digital subscribers."

TWEET DU JOUR -- @NickKristof: "An NYT intern couldn't find my office, so asked a random man for directions. He led her all the way; it was publisher Arthur Sulzberger."

THE TALK OF WALL STREET - "Private Equity's Top Washington Lobbyist to Step Down," by Bloomberg's Jason Kelly: "Judge, 61, plans to leave the post Aug. 15, he wrote in a letter to members of the Private Equity Growth Capital Council."

NYRA TO CAP ATTENDANCE FOR TRAVERS-Albany Times Union's Dennis Yusko: "The New York Racing Association will limit attendance to 50,000 for the Aug. 29 running of the Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course. NYRA officials made the announcement Thursday morning, as they work to lure Triple Crown winner American Pharoah to run in the race and prepare for one of the largest race days ever at the 152-year-old track. It's the first time in memory that attendance has been capped at the track, NYRA officials said. Reserved seating, dining and clubhouse admission for Travers Day is sold out. General admission tickets are still available."

LEE STILL IN HOSPITAL-Newsday's Michael Gormley: "Physicians are trying to identify and combat an infection suffered by food TV star Sandra Lee who will remain hospitalized for at least another day, a spokeswoman said Thursday. Lee, the longtime girlfriend of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, was rushed to Roosevelt Hospital Tuesday night in pain and suffering from a fluid buildup thought to be related to her double mastectomy surgery on May 19."

CUOMO BIGFOOTS DE BLASIO ON LEGIONNAIRES'-The Daily News' Ken Lovett: "The Legionnaires Disease outbreak in the Bronx gave Gov. Cuomo another chance to bigfoot Mayor de Blasio - and true to form he took it. With the death toll now up to 10, Cuomo Thursday unveiled a state plan of action that not surprisingly appeared to put him on a different page than the mayor. Team de Blasio had been in contact with the federal Centers for Disease Control but didn't believe a CDC team needed to be dispatched to the city. Cuomo - urged on by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., who called the governor - had a different view. He spoke with CDC head Dr. Thomas Frieden, who agreed to send a team to the Bronx on Friday."

-- De Blasio's plan of action -- DNAinfo's Jeff Mays: "All cooling towers in the city must be inspected and disinfected within 14 days following an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease that has now killed 10 people and sickened 100 others in the South Bronx. ... De Blasio said those inspection requirements are not currently in place because the city has never before had to deal with an outbreak of this magnitude. In fact, the city is unaware what buildings that have cooling towers, including its own municipal buildings. The city is conducting a survey of its own buildings to find out which ones have cooling towers. ... DNAinfo New York reported exclusively Thursday that a city teacher who worked near the cluster area died of the disease in April and the city didn't investigate."

FIREFIGHTER CONTRACT -- 11 percent raise -- Politico New York's Gloria Pazmino: Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Uniformed Firefighters Association announced on Thursday they have reached a tentative contract agreement that will give firefighters an 11-percent raise over seven years and level disability pension benefits for union members.

The deal comes months after union president Steve Cassidy engaged in a bitter fight with death toll now up to 10, Cuomo Thursday unveiled a state plan of action that not surprisingly appeared to put him on a different page than the mayor. Team de Blasio had been in contact with the federal Centers for Disease Control but didn't believe a CDC team needed to be dispatched to the city. Cuomo - urged on by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., who called the governor - had a different view. He spoke with CDC head Dr. Thomas Frieden, who agreed to send a team to the Bronx on Friday. ... Baruch College Public Affairs Prof. Douglas Muzzio called Cuomo's intervention 'male juvenile playground b.s.'"

"NEW YORK CITY RIPS HEDGE FUNDS Over Puerto Rico While Giving Them Billions" -- Bloomberg's Martin Braun and Henry Goldman: "Melissa Mark-Viverito, New York City's second-most-powerful elected official, called them vultures.

Hedge funds that hold billions of dollars of Puerto Rico's high-yield debt 'are feeding off the misery of the island,' Mark-Viverito, speaker of the City Council, told a cheering crowd last week at a City Hall rally. She accused the funds of trying to gut wages, education and health care for the island's 3.5 million residents. What she and other critics who spoke that day didn't say was that New York taxpayers and retirees entrust some of those hedge funds with more than $2.2 billion of the city's $166 billion in pension assets.

HILLARYWATCH -- "Hillary Clinton's $2 Billion Money Man," by The Daily Beast's David Freedlander: "Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, the man behind what has been predicted to grow to a $2 billion operation, is serious, soft-spoken, unflappable, and fiercely loyal to his boss ... [and] exceptionally close to Hillary Clinton. ... In conversations with a dozen of some of the Clinton operation's biggest fundraisers, those who have raised a million dollars or more, many repeated the same thing-that when you talk to Dennis Cheng, it is often as close as you get to talking to Hillary Clinton."

INSTAGRAM DU JOUR -- @hillaryclinton: "New friends [with] @kimkardashian":

REAL ESTATE -- COURTSIDE-"Forest City must pay Prokhorov $31M by August 12," by Real Deal's Rey Mashayekhi: "If Forest City Enterprises is unable to divest its stake in the Brooklyn Nets by August 12, it will owe partner Onexim Group-led by Russian billionaire and Nets majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov-$25 million as part of a forbearance agreement made in 2013, plus an additional $6.3 million to fund its share of the team's capital call for the upcoming NBA season. Failure to pay up would see Forest City's share in the team diluted to 8 percent, from the current 20 percent. While the company is seeking to avoid the payment and is holding discussions with its partners, Forest City CEO David LaRue said in an earnings call Wednesday that 'if it comes down to it, if we had to make that payment, we would.'"

TIDY TUBES-"Subway riders coming clean, study finds," by Politico New York's Kelly Weill: "New York subway riders are surprisingly clean. In a pilot study conducted over four years, the city Transit Authority removed trash cans from 39 subway stations, leaving riders with the choice of holding onto their trash or disposing of it (illegally) on or near the platform. The study found that litter rates in stations without trash cans were about the same as in stations with trash cans."

GENTRIFICATION WATCH-"Arts Not a Priority for the Bronx, Says Councilman Opposing Plan By Brooklyn Org," by Observer's Guelda Voien: "While artists and non-profits have begun eyeing the Bronx amid high prices in Manhattan and Brooklyn, there is one group not entirely on board with an influx of creative types to the borough: locals. Talk about galleries and artists studios arriving in the Bronx is heating up, but New York City Councilman Ritchie Torres told the Observer that neither he nor his constituents think art or artists should be a priority in the area. Indeed, with each new mention of art in the media, the community's fears about being priced out by gentrification are piqued, he said."

THE HOME TEAMS -- Politico New York's Howard Megdal: Yankees 2, Red Sox 1: Jacoby Ellsbury broke a seventh-inning tie with a home run.

-- The day ahead: The Liberty head to Chicago to face Elena Delle Donne and the Sky. Sky Blue FC goes to Houston to face Carli Lloyd and the Dash. The Yankees host the Blue Jays. The Mets are in Tampa Bay.

COFFEE BREAK -- "Van, taxi latest NYC lodging option for bold, cheap visitors," by AP's Verena Dobnik: "There's no electricity, no running water, no bathroom. But travelers to New York City bold enough to book a parked van for $22 a night through Airbnb do get a real bed and a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline from across the East River in Queens. ... While parked vehicles make up a tiny fraction of the thousands of Airbnb private accommodation listings in New York City - just three vans, a converted yellow taxi and two campers - they provide an option for adventurous, budget-minded visitors seeking a place to rest their heads for far less than the $200-and-up most hotels charge."
