CUOMO TO PUSH FOR $15 MIN WAGE- Wall Street Journal's Josh Dawsey and Erica Orden: Gov. Andrew Cuomo, after moving to boost the minimum wage for fast-food workers in New York state earlier this year, is expected on Thursday to propose a $15-per-hour statewide minimum wage for all industries, according to people familiar with the matter. In announcing his effort, Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, will receive an important backer: Vice President Joe Biden, who is set to appear with Mr. Cuomo at the news conference ... People familiar with the talks on Wednesday said discussions on the proposal remained fluid and that the final number could change. New York's current minimum hourly wage across all industries is $8.75 and is set to increase to $9 at the end of the year." http://on.wsj.com/1L2F5oO
...This past legislative session, Cuomo unsuccessfully sought to raise the minimum wage to $11.50 an hour in New York City and $10.50 elsewhere in the state. In February, the governor's office said that anything more than a $13 an hour minimum wage floated by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was a "non-starter." In July, Cuomo told reporters that he would seek to raise minimum wage through legislative action next year.
'FOOL' -- Bratton hits Christie for criticizing NYC safety -- NY1: "When you live in a glass house with a lot of broken windows, I wouldn't be throwing stones and I think the governor basically unfortunately made a bit of a fool himself ... When he gets Trenton, when he gets Newark, when he gets Camden to be anywhere near as safe as New York city, then he might be able to criticize us ... Stay within your own neighborhood. When you have issues inside your own neighborhood that need fixing, fix those before you start criticizing things that are going on in another neighborhood." SEE THE INTERVIEW: http://goo.gl/r0DZmv
PAGE SIX -- "ABC's David Muir nicknamed 'Anchor Monster,'" by Emily Smith : "Muir is being nicknamed 'Anchor Monster' by network staffers after repeatedly losing his temper with his crew over being beaten in the ratings by his rival, NBC's Lester Holt. ... An ABC source tells us, 'Despite the biggest "get" in the world - the pope - David is still losing to Lester. David feels under pressure and returned to New York from Rome cranky and has been lashing out at the staff. He screams at the crew unless [ABC News President] James Goldston is around. On an open mike he was heard complaining he wanted less of the reporters' voices and more of his own during the pope town hall." http://pge.sx/1EXzQ8N

SHOW TIME -- "Stephen Colbert's Shiny New Home on Broadway Reflects Its Past," by Times' John Koblin: "CBS knocked down the light fixtures, sound barriers and an air-conditioning duct that concealed the ceiling when David Letterman was host, bringing it back to something resembling its original 1927 state. The dome, along with restored stained glass on the perimeter of the theater, allows the evocative fixtures of an old Broadway show house to merge with the modern accouterments that were added for Mr. Colbert's show: a new marquee and a high-tech set, featuring LED lights and video walls behind his desk. It remains to be seen whether Mr. Colbert will use the Ed Sullivan Theater, or the neighborhood around it, as an integral part of his show ... But he was clearly proud of his new home, which took CBS three and a half months to build, at ... about $18 million." http://nyti.ms/1ifvjEX
--"Billie Holiday Hologram Comes to the Apollo" - WSJ's Pia Catton: "In a new show slated to open in late 2015, the Billie Holiday hologram will sing, accompanied by recorded music, and speak from a script welcoming guests to the Apollo. The presentation will be the first in a new series of daytime programming designed to meet demand from tourists who visit the Harlem venue during the day, but often can only tour the space. 'We have hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit the theater during the day time,' said Jonelle Procope, president and chief executive of the Apollo. 'There are no shows for people see.' Expected to start in time to catch holiday tourism, the show's frequency during the week, curtain time and cost are still being developed, according to Ms. Procope. ... The show will make the Apollo the first venue in America to have a permanent hologram installation." http://goo.gl/ZVjCpF
HACKED- POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez: The personal information of roughly 7 million people may have been compromised because of a "sophisticated cyber attack" on Rochester-based Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, company officials said Wednesday. Because of recent attacks against other insurance companies, Excellus brought in a cyber security firm to do a forensic assessment of its information technology systems and discovered that on Aug. 5, its system was hacked. It's unclear whether customers' personal information - such as their name, date of birth, Social Security number, mailing address, telephone number, member identification number, financial account information and claims information - has been removed from the IT system or used inappropriately. http://politi.co/1VO1bhO
--The cyberattack may have affected another 3.5 million individuals who do business with these Excellus sister companies: Lifetime Benefit Solutions, Lifetime Care, Lifetime Health Medical Group, The MedAmerica Companies and Univera Healthcare.http://bit.ly/1EP7mOA
THANKS BUT NO THANKS -- Senate candidate disinvites Mark-Viverito from fundraiser -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: Catherine Cortez Masto, a former Nevada attorney general who is running for the U.S. Senate, has disinvited City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito from a fundraiser for her campaign, because of the speaker's support for a Puerto Rican nationalist imprisoned for seditious conspiracy.
-- A day after POLITICO New York reported Mark-Viverito planned to headline a fundraiser later this month for Cortez Masto , a Democrat running to succeed Senate minority leader Harry Reid, Cortez Masto's campaign told POLITICO New York that Mark-Viverito is no longer invited to the event, and her campaign will not accept any contributions from the speaker. "After learning of Speaker Mark-Viverito's support of clemency for a convicted terrorist, our campaign felt it necessary to immediately cut all ties between the Speaker and the campaign," Scott Fairchild, manager for the Cortez Masto campaign, said in statement.
-- A risk for Cortez Masto: Mark-Viverito is not the only elected official to have called for the controversial figure's release, and Cortez Masto's gesture may put her at odds with other prominent Latino lawmakers, including Rep. Nydia Velasquez and Rep. Luis Gutiérrez from Illinois, as well as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which recently sent President Barack Obama a letter in support of Rivera's release. http://politi.co/1UClsd6
NYCHA selects Wyckoff Gardens, Holmes Towers for new development -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: Wyckoff Gardens in Brooklyn and Holmes Towers in Manhattan will be the first two sites chosen under a controversial proposal by the New York City Housing Authority to allow developers to build half affordable and half market-rate housing on public land, POLITICO New York has learned.
-- NYCHA expects the program, which it is calling "NextGen Neighborhoods," will create about 1,000 units of housing. That is a fraction of the 7,500 mixed-income units the housing authority wants to build on public land over the next 10 years. The so-called "infill housing" is a cornerstone of Mayor Bill de Blasio's affordable housing plan, which calls for 17,000 units to be built on 50 to 60 public housing developments over 10 years. About 10,000 of the new units would be classified as affordable housing. ... For both sites, NYCHA is defining affordable housing as limited to residents whose income falls under 60 percent of the area median income, or roughly $46,600 for a family of three. http://goo.gl/sR5YLA
MEDIA MORNING - BLOOMBERG'S TERMINAL THREAT: There are new kids on the block vying to compete with Bloomberg's pricey terminals: startups aiming to provide alternatives to the $21,000-a-year terminal. Money.net has already begun to build some momentum to compete with Bloomberg, and a Goldman Sachs' startup called Symphony, which will be introduced Sept. 15, provides an alternative to the chat program used by traders and investors on traditional terminals, The New York Times' Nathaniel Popper writes. A threat to Bloomberg's machines is a potential threat to Bloomberg's print products; the terminals have generated billions of dollars in revenue for the company and have heavily subsidized the company's editorial efforts. http://nyti.ms/1Md8TjX
EVA MOSKOWITZ 2017? -- Charter leader eyes run against de Blasio -- POLITICO New York's Eliza Shapiro: Back in May, Success Academy CEO Eva Moskowitz delivered a campaign-style speech to hundreds of the city's wealthiest business leaders. "I realize Mayor de Blasio sometimes gets picked on unfairly," she said, to laughter from the crowd of Manhattan Institute donors clad in black tie. "For example, he's been criticized for traveling to Iowa and the like, but I don't think his traveling to those places causes any harm. Coming back to New York, well, that's a different story." The speech mocked the mayor for his foreign travel, his opposition to charter schools, and his inability to deliver on core political promises, and signaled an admitted "interest" by Moskowitz in unseating de Blasio in 2017.
-- "I believe I would have a lot to offer as mayor but the question for me is whether I could contribute more than I am now by running Success Academy," she told POLITICO New York in a statement on Tuesday. ... One colleague of Moskowitz said, "It's the job she wants most in the world." http://goo.gl/8e00Jg
SCOOP: Source: Poll call on Tish James 2017: A registered Democratic voter in Brooklyn told POLITICO New York they received a poll call last night asking about Public Advocate Letitia James, who reportedly is considering a 2017 run for mayor. In an email, the voter said questions included "Do you know who the public advocate is?"; "How good a job is the mayor doing?" and asked about the favorable / unfavorable views of the following people: state attorney general Eric Schneiderman, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, former City Council speaker Christine Quinn, James, City Comptroller Scott Stringer and de Blasio.
-- Other poll questions, according to the voter: Do you agree or disagree with the following statements: James "cares about people like me"; has "strong values" and is a "strong leader." The caller also asked how important the following items from James' record were: "Leading fight for NYC to divest from gun retailers"; "Sued to protect prisoners against sex abuse by guards"; "Sued to release Eric Garner grand jury" transcripts; fought for free school lunches; called for reform of nail salons and police body cameras. A spokesman for James declined to comment when asked about the poll. -- Azi

LLC LOOPHOLE PENALTY- Times Union's Chris Bragg: "A settlement struck in a lawsuit targeting the so-called 'LLC loophole' in New York election law yielded a $10,000 penalty and could pave the way to future state cases challenging limited liability company donations. Because this one was settled out of court, however, it's unclear whether the strategy of the plaintiff, state Board of Elections Chief Enforcement Counsel Risa Sugarman, will ultimately hold up to legal scrutiny and curb donors' long-term use of a quirk in election law. Still, legal experts said, the payment secured by Sugarman and the precedent of the settlement could act as a near-term deterrent to LLC giving." http://bit.ly/1g8NVEu
ETHICS COMMITTEE INVESTIGATES ASSEMBLYWOMAN- Time Warner Cable News' Ryan Whalen: The Assembly ethics committee started a preliminary investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Assemblywoman Angela Wozniak, a freshman Republican from Cheektowaga. Several people, including Wozniak, have been scheduled for interviews as part of the committee's investigation, sources tell the news outlet. http://bit.ly/1IZ2ql5
FEDS AUDIT STATE HOMELAND SECURITY- Times Union's Rick Karlin: "An audit by a federal inspector general has turned up problems ranging from lack of management controls to questionable expenses in the way New York's vast homeland security apparatus handled a chunk of more than $750 million in grants several years ago. 'Neither the state nor the New York City urban area had sufficient management controls to ensure (recipients) used grant funds appropriately,' said the audit, released in June by the federal Department of Homeland Security Inspector General's office." http://bit.ly/1NrbfMt
NEWSPAPER WAR -- "In Battle with Local Bronx Media, Klein Publishes Own Newspaper" -- Gotham Gazette's David Howard King: "Some residents of the Bronx were surprised in August when what looked like a new newspaper arrived in their mailboxes. Upon closer inspection of Riverdale Record, some could tell they had received an elaborate piece of campaign literature from state Senator Jeff Klein dressed up as a community newspaper. 'Riverdale Record Serving the communities of Riverdale, Van Cortlandt Village & Kingsbridge' reads the masthead, next to a picture of a smiling Klein. Underneath, in smaller white-on-red type: 'The Official Publication of Senator Jeff Klein and Our Community.' The paper is also labeled as having a distribution of 36,000. At the very bottom of the fourth and last page there is a note that reads: 'Paid for and approved by Klein for New York.' ...
-- "Shant Shahrigian, editor at The Riverdale Press [said:] 'Politicians at every level today are doing their best to thwart independent reporting on their policies and activities. State Sen. Jeff Klein is a case in point. His staff has endeavored to control access to the senator - even at public events - and he has, from time to time, refused to communicate at all with his local newspaper, The Riverdale Press. Now he has packaged the same sort of self-promoting message that every office-holder sends to constituents in the guise of a newspaper. I am confident that readers will be able to tell the difference between that and real news.'"
-- "[Klein spokeswoman Candice] Giove declined to discuss Gotham Gazette inquiries about the paper and asked that questions be emailed to her. She provided a statement about the intentions of the Riverdale Record, but did not respond to questions about who writes the articles. Klein was not made available for a requested phone interview about his relationship with Bronx media. 'The Riverdale Record is geared toward keeping local residents up to date on the latest news, upcoming events and important work Senator Klein is doing to build up our borough and invest in Bronx families.'" http://goo.gl/9VcqN7

SPEED READ -- "New York City Health Board Backs Warning on Menu Items With High Salt," by Times' Benjamin Mueller and Michael M. Grynbaum: "The rule - believed to be the first of its kind in the country - will employ the common saltshaker, encased in a black triangle, as the warning symbol to be placed next to any menu item that contains more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium, the daily limit many nutritionists recommend. Health experts said the measure would help combat heart disease and set a new standard for nutritional transparency that could soon be widely adopted." http://nyti.ms/1EPOCyq

'My husband Marc [Mezvinsky] and I were at a dinner for a friend who recently got a new job, and my dad was out with friends, so my mom babysat which was really nice,' [said] Chelsea, 35 ...

REAL ESTATE -- PRESERVATION DELIBERATION-"Landmarks proposal sparks heated Council debate," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "The de Blasio administration has joined the chorus of concerns over a proposal to speed up the process for designating buildings as landmarks, but is leaving the door open to compromise rather than opposing the plan altogether. During a lively and lengthy City Council hearing on Wednesday, the head of the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission expressed a series of concerns about legislation that would impose deadlines for the agency.
"The bill would ensure that no individual property owner waits more than one year for a status determination - a period during which renovations, sales and other alterations are limited. But it does not account for the cumbersome process for researching proposals for historic districts, commission chairwoman Meenakshi Srinivasan said. Proposals to grant landmark status to districts would have to be decided within two years." http://politi.co/1Fyp8jT
UNDER THE RADAR-"Landlords strike gold by turning basements into destinations," by Crain's Daniel Geiger: "Most people think of underground Manhattan as a labyrinth of sewers, steam pipes and dank, lightless spaces ruled by rats and who knows what else-a realm where most folks fear to tread for anything other than a swift subway ride. Now a growing group of the borough's landlords hopes to change that. They are collectively pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into subterranean floors that they envision as the future homes of stores, restaurants and entertainment spaces that will differ little from those upstairs, where the sun shines." http://bit.ly/1JVZ5XV
THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Mets 5, Nationals 3: Stephen Strasburg absolutely dominated, as did Jacob deGrom, so the Mets entered the eighth trailing 2-1. Then came a pinch-homer from Kelly Johnson, a two-run homer by the incredible Yoenis Cespedes, and the Mets defeated the Nats despite Strasburg and two Bryce Harper homers. The Mets are now seven games ahead of the Nationals. The first-place Mets.
-- Orioles 5, Yankees 3: Steve Pearce's eighth-inning homer broke a 3-3 tie.
-- Liberty 74, Sun 64: Tina Charles scored 16 and pulled down 13 rebounds, Epiphanny Prince dropped in 25, and the Liberty secured home court throughout the WNBA playoffs.
-- The day ahead: The first-place Mets are in Atlanta. The Blue Jays come to Yankee Stadium for the series that'll likely decide the AL East.
--"James Blake, former tennis star, slammed to ground and handcuffed outside midtown hotel by white NYPD cops who mistook him for ID theft suspect," by News' Wayne Coffey: "The incident occurred around noon in front of the Grand Hyatt on East 42 St., as Blake, a 35-year-old African-American who attended Harvard before going on tour, was waiting for a car to take him to Flushing Meadows, where he was making corporate appearances for Time-Warner Cable. 'It was definitely scary and definitely crazy,' said Blake, who was once ranked No. 4 in the world and was among the most popular U.S. players of his generation. He suffered a cut to his left elbow and bruises to his left leg." http://nydn.us/1UD7HuU
