New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg: Not a fan of Big Gulps, but he's a certified newsprint aficionado.

“I have not gone to read everything on the internet. I still read eight newspapers a day,” Bloomberg said today. He appeared via a live video feed at All Things Digital, a tech conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

Bloomberg said he preferred broadsheet presentations because they allow him to scan headlines. "I want someone to tell me what to read,” Hizzoner said. He likes reading magazines on paper better than on his iPad, too.

Let's start some irresponsible speculation right now: Clearly this is a signal that Bloomberg wants to buy The New York Times.

And he's in some good company:
