Does Simon truly think he is that important?
Now we know. Jeff Simon, putting aside his natural modesty, has confessed that he was instrumental in getting Grant Tinker hired as president of NBC and thus transforming the television industry.
I look forward, with keen anticipation, to future columns in which Simon explains his role in convincing the Iranians to suspend, if temporarily, their enrichment of weapons-grade uranium and the Chinese to sign the Paris accords on climate change.
Also, a private note to the Pegulas, to be revealed in a future column after Rex Ryan heads to greener pastures, would be most welcome.
