Anthony Weiner Thinking About A Career In Media: NY Observer

When Anthony Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011, speculation immediately arose that he would start a career in cable news or some other media platform. Instead, of course, Weiner kept sexting for a year, raised his son and then ran for mayor in New York City.

According to the New York Observer, though, Weiner never got the media out of his head:

Mr. Weiner began reaching out to agents who represent talent for television and radio as early as February of 2013-months before he began to seriously test the waters on a return to public life with an April New York Times Magazine story, according to individuals familiar with the conversations.

Weiner was a regular, lively figure on cable news before his resignation--whether fighting with Megyn Kelly or commiserating with Rachel Maddow. Since his return to public life, though, things have gotten a lot less friendly, as Weiner started openly mocking reporters to their faces and the same pundits who had welcomed him began viciously denouncing him.
