Original Title:NBC Thrilled Bloomberg Using Fortune for Anti-Gun Push...After Fretting Over Too Much Money in Politics
In a glowing interview with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday's NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie touted the anti-gun activist's latest crusade: "You're putting $50 million into the effort....saying essentially this new group is going to borrow a page from the NRA's playbook. The NRA has been very successful in frightening lawmakers who oppose them....You're quoted in the New York Times this morning saying, 'We have to make them afraid of us.'" [Listen to the audio]
Only two weeks earlier, NBC was wringing its hands over a Supreme Court ruling loosening campaign finance restrictions. On the April 3 Today, White House correspondent Peter Alexander proclaimed: "And you thought there was already too much money in politics. Fasten your seat belts. From now on, there's gonna be a whole lot more."

I don’t know why anyone would pay any attention to Bloomberg after his insane comment about his VIP pass to heaven.
I missed that. Could you link it? (Yeah, I am being lazy)
Thank you kindly.
I don't know why anyone would pay attention to NBC...
I am hoping that God will pay attention to his claim and show him the truth in a public way.
No, no, no; it isn’t that there is too much money in politics, it is that those of us who have to earn it are able to contribute. You know, those terrible PACS on the right, the NRA, Pro life PACS. Only libs are supposed to be able to influence elections!
That said, I have been saying for years that we don’t need to get the money out of politics, but rather politics out of money. The problem is being gone at from the wrong direction.
