Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning:
Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton spoke with Len and Michael about the continued crime issues in the City, which he said were created by the “wizards” in Albany.
Democratic strategist Melissa DeRosa spoke with the guys about the continued New York State battle over bail reform, and whether or not the state legislature will work with Governor Kathy Hochul to put a plan in place.
Len and Michael talked with Scott Weiner from Scott's Pizza Tours about the end of the $1 pizza slice, which appears to be a casualty of the pandemic.
One of the biggest stories of the week was the expectation that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg was going to indict former President Trump for hush money payments to a porn actress. The week came and went with no indictment, leading to the question of whether Bragg has developed cold feet. Mark talked about it with Boston radio host Howie Carr.
The Fed again raised interest rates this week to try to combat inflation, but CNBC contributor Jake Novak told Mark that the Fed alone cannot fix everything that is wrong with the country’s inflation issues.
Mark spoke with “Shark Tank’s” Matt Higgins about his new book “Burn the Boats,” which shows you the way to success, as demonstrated by Matt’s own story of being a high school dropout who went on to become a terrific businessman.
