Blame Bloomberg, not Trump for Bloomberg News’ dilemma

Michael Bloomberg delivered a speech at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on Jan. 29 2019

"Having one presidential campaign is nice and all, but I had some extra money lying around and chose to splurge on another first-class presidential campaign with all the bells and whistles", said Bloomberg, adding that he planned to split time between his original campaign and his new luxury one, for which he'd already gotten the most expensive consultants, most luxurious campaign vehicles, and nicest website money can buy. The new policy will no longer permit representatives from the news company to be credentialed at events, and the campaign will determine on a case-by-case basis whether they will respond to specific inquiries from Bloomberg reporters, according to a statement from the campaign.

"Bloomberg News is one of the largest and most influential news organizations in the world", Baquet said.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday announced his criminal justice plan that intends to reduce incarceration rates by half, The Hill reports.

Trump blacklists Bloomberg News from covering campaign over bias for billionaire Democrat boss President Donald Trump's re-election campaign has barred Bloomberg News from covering rallies and events, citing the outlet's overt bias for their boss, a billionaire seeking the Democrat presidential nomination.

"The accusation of bias couldn't be further from the truth", he said in response to Parscale's announcement. This can stay the coverage of the Trump marketing campaign till Bloomberg Information publicly rescinds its resolution.


Bloomberg News Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait said they have covered Trump "fairly and in an unbiased way since he became a candidate" and they will continue to do so despite the ban. Bloomberg officials say it's a position they've navigated before when he was mayor.

In his memo describing how Bloomberg News would cover the campaign, Micklethwait said that reporters would "write about virtually all aspects of this presidential contest".

"The second major change we're going to make is to reduce the number of adults in prison ... it starts with improving schools, expanding job training, and investing in economic growth in communities that have suffered generations of neglect", Bloomberg said.

"We condemn any action that keeps quality news media from reporting fairly and accurately on the presidency and the leadership of the country", Baquet said.

"It's really unsafe when you start saying to any press outlet that you can't cover me, you can't be credentialed, you can't get on the bus or you can't come to the White House", Biden said on his campaign bus. "Come on. You can't do that. It's the nature of the beast".
