The logic is inescapable. Tommaso:
What would you do if one of your employees had some juicy dirt on you and wanted a raise?
It depends upon how juicy the dirt is, but a raise would seem to be in order. If the requests for continual raises got out of line, then concrete boots might be more in order.
What about that so-called Big Hack from Bloomberg?
That got me to thinking. What if Riley had some dirt on his boss? Or, what if he knew the real truth behind the story– and it was so bad that Bloomberg would crumble into a business version of Fox News– and was willing to go public?
Unless he got promoted and got a big raise.
The reporter got a promotion and a raise. Hmmm.
