Bloomberg News decided to officially institutionalize the blatant news bias that permeates its political reporting and sanction itself as an official Democrat shill.
John Micklethwait, Bloomberg’s editor-in-chief, in late November sent a note to staffers on how the publication would cover the race given the billionaire founder was now a candidate.
Micklethwait said the news site will “continue our tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries.”
The editor did not extend the same policy to President Trump, and maintained it will continue to investigate (ie: trash) Trump at will.
At least Micklethwait owned up to what we all already know: it’s phony fake-news coverage.
“The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong,” Parscale said.
“Bloomberg News has declared that they won’t investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors, many of whom are current holders of high office, but will continue critical reporting on President Trump. As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly. Presented with this new policy from Bloomberg News, our campaign was forced to determine how to proceed,” Trump’s 2020 campaign manager added.

“Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events,”Parscale said. “We will determine whether to engage with individual reporters or answer inquiries from Bloomberg News on a case-by-case basis. This will remain the policy of the Trump campaign until Bloomberg News publicly rescinds its decision.”
