BREAKING: Trump Campaign Will No Longer Credential Bloomberg News Reporters
GP ^ | 12/2/2019 | Eric Blair

Posted on 12/02/2019 9:39:49 AM PST by Pollard

Bloomberg News Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait released a memo last week saying the news agency will not “investigate” Michael Bloomberg, who has entered the 2020 race for the presidential nomination.

“We 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. We cannot treat Mike’s Democratic competitors differently from him,” Micklethwait wrote.

Bloomberg News, though, will continue to investigate President Trump and Republicans.

That doesn’t sit well with the Trump campaign.

“The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong,” Brad Parscale, Trump 2020 campaign manage, said on Monday.

“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,” he said.

Parscale said that because of the new policy, the Trump campaign will no longer give press credentials to reporters from Bloomberg News.

One of the few GP headlines that could actually make good use of BOOM but they use Breaking instead.

Makes sense. How can you allow reporters from your opponent’s news organization to attend your events in their official capacity?

Bloomberg News actually has reporters instead of robots and electronic trolls?

Calling it Bloomberg News is a huge stretch.

Good!

Bloomberg has not only demonstrated they’re a yellow journalism rag but gone out of their way to proudly state that!

They aren’t reporters- they are partisan back scratchers/butt sniffers- As such they shouldn’t be issues PRESS credentials- They aren’t the press- they are democrat lap dogs

Media outlets should be independent and fair, and this decision proves that Bloomberg News is neither.

The @GOP stands with @TeamTrump and will no longer credential Bloomberg representatives.

Congratulations Bloomberg News, you’ve just admitted to a violation of Federal Election Law by an illegal donation to multiple candidates.

I get Bloomberg Government news emails for work. It’s amazing how left-biased the articles are. I am amazed every day how slanted it is. This is no big loss.

I’m sure all the Democrats running for POTUS refuse to stay at any Trump Properties.
