  • WHAT? Bloomberg Opinion Editor Says Absence of American Jobs a ‘Good Thing’

    An asinine Bloomberg op-ed suggested that maybe it’s best if people who lost energy jobs under President Joe Biden’s eco-extremist agenda don’t get the new green jobs he falsely promised at all. Bloomberg Opinion Editor Mark Gongloff’s op-ed was headlined, “Our Single-Minded Drive to Create Jobs Has Its Drawbacks.” Gongloff’s sub-headline was just as ludicrous: “On some issues, including green energy and immigration, an absence of American jobs can be a good thing.” The story led off with two assumptions that were just awful: “Maybe we don’t actually want green jobs [to rectify for the fossil fuel jobs Biden is...
  • Bloomberg News axes 90 as top editor blasts staff

    John Micklethwait, the top editor of Bloomberg News, blasted the rank and file for spotty performance over the past year as he unveiled cuts of approximately 90 people in the editorial and research departments. ... We all know that we also ‘lost’ stories because we moved too slowly,” he continued. “Teams waited for somebody to back-read a piece or ignored the requests from the News Desk to get a blast out quickly. Managers spent too much time setting up conference calls when they should just have been writing. Or teams suddenly delivered enterprise pieces that nobody wanted. “Covid has highlighted...
  • Bloomberg News Admits $145M in ‘Dark Money’ Helped Pave Biden’s Path to WH

    Bloomberg News blew away the left’s hypocritical outrage about conservative “dark money” by tying President Joe Biden to precisely that kind of campaign funding — after the election, of course. The liberal outlet admitted in a new report that Biden “benefited from a record-breaking amount of donations from anonymous donors to outside groups backing him.” Bloomberg News assessed that this meant the “public will never have a full accounting of who helped him win the White House.” But here’s the kicker: Biden’s campaign was backed by “$145 million in so-called dark money donations, a type of fundraising Democrats have decried...

    Fact checks on the United States' COVID vaccine timeline expose how outlets like NBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post are willing to attack American aspirations to score political points.Long gone are the days of Snopes assuring readers there isn’t a million dollars waiting in a Nigerian bank account for them. Distant are the happier times when fact-checks assured us there was no hook-handed hitchhiker killing our grandparents on the local highway. Today, we see an alliance between corporate media and corporate tech titans to squelch debate, silence conservatives, and literally censor regular Americans, dissenting scientists, newspaper competitors,...

    Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg spent millions trying to prop up pro-abortion candidates in the 2020 elections. Open Secrets records show Bloomberg gave the Planned Parenthood Votes (PPV) super PAC at least $4 million in the 2020 electoral cycle. The group, associated with Planned Parenthood, “makes contributions to candidates who support abortion,” according to Influence Watch. The grand total PPV spent on the 2020 federal elections amounted to $10,092,809. This means that Bloomberg’s contribution accounted for a whopping 40 percent of the pro-abortion group’s entire spending on federal elections in 2020.

    There doesn’t appear to be an end in sight for the hundreds of millions Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg is willing to spend to buy the U.S. election for Democrats. The liberal billionaire’s new schtick is elevating Democratic candidates down-ballot who are like-minded with his extremist vision on climate change. Specifically, Bloomberg is dumping an “additional $20 million into this election cycle, flooding the airwaves in North Carolina, Texas and Arizona to promote down-ballot candidates who share his views on climate,” according to Axios. The outlet noted that this cash dump is “on top of the $100 million he pledged...

    You’d think that Bloomberg News would want to lay low after a recent report showing it censored a story about Chinese elites and fired the reporter behind it. The news outlet is still shilling for Beijing and its tyrant leader Xi Jinping. Bloomberg News plastered a Chinese propaganda, stealth-edited piece on the front page of its website headlined “Trump Threatens to Exit WHO, Leaving Xi to Lead Virus Fight.” The piece spewed how “Trump’s ‘America First’ policy has made Xi look more like a champion of the international order.” [Emphasis added.] The insane quote praising the communist dictator and denigrating...

    Bloomberg News shutdown an investigation into Chinese Communist Party elites, fired the reporter on the beat and then targeted that reporter’s wife to keep her mouth shut, according to a new NPR report. The Bloomberg reporters involved investigating the wealth of Chinese Communist Party elites had their efforts killed by their company six years ago, which was “fearful of repercussions by the Chinese government,” NPR reported Apr. 14. The outlet continued: “The company [Bloomberg News] successfully silenced the reporters involved. And it sought to keep the spouse of one of the reporters quiet, too.”

    It's nothing new for American mainstream media outlets to unabashedly slobber all over their chosen Democratic candidates -- that kind of overt bias is commonplace. Covert bias -- not talking about a politician and thereby giving him or her a free pass -- is a far more insidious thing. It is also essentially the current business model for Bloomberg News and its myriad media offerings. When a media entity is avoiding reporting about a candidate seeking his party's nomination for president because said candidate is the company's namesake and founder, we're getting into some Inception levels of bias. Let's be...

    No wonder liberal billionaire 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg does not want his own news outlet investigating him. They might have to do journalism and risk exposing where his money has been going all these years.The liberal New York Times chose to do some actual journalism by digging up records on Bloomberg’s enormous spending between 1977 and 2019 in a report Feb. 15. Bloomberg spent "at least" a whopping $10 billion split between charitable and political causes. Some of those causes included: abortion, climate change and gun control. As of now, the billionaire has poured an unheard of $401 million just...

    Good move. Now do CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and… – Trump Campaign Chairman Brad Parscale announced on Monday that the campaign would no longer be offering press credentials to anyone representing Bloomberg News. That inevitable move – labeled as “surprising” by many corrupt media outlets – comes after an internal memo written by Bloomberg News editor-in-chief John Micklethwait announced that the outlet would continue its “tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries.” So, Bloomberg News desperately wants...

    The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee announced Monday that Bloomberg News reporters will no longer be given press credentials for 2020 events and rallies. I cannot say I disagree with the decision. After all, Bloomberg News did announce last week that it would extend its policy of not covering its founder, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, to his 2020 Democratic primary opponents, all while still investigating the Trump White House. If Bloomberg News will not treat itself like a legitimate and even-handed news organization, then why should Republicans and the Trump campaign? Of course, this is...

    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...

    Billionaire "news" media mogul Michael Bloomberg is running for president. How will his Bloomberg News empire cover this? Bloomberg News posted an article touting how much trouble President Donald Trump is in. It lustily listed all his scandals: "Lawmakers and prosecutors are looking at whether he abused the powers of the presidency, obstructed an investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign, engaged in fraudulent business practices, violated the emoluments clauses of the Constitution and defamed women by saying they lied about alleged sexual assaults." That's how they cover Trump. How will they cover Bloomberg? Get ready. Bloomberg has a...

    President of the White House Correspondents' Association Margaret Talev defends the decision to have Michelle Wolf as the comedian at the dinner, saying "she had a message to deliver and she did." Talev also said she hoped "those 15 minutes" do not "define four hours of what was a wonderful and unifying night." Wolf's set has been criticized by both CNN and FOX News. "I think she brought to the night what she thought was important to say, and her goal may not have been press unity and everyone rallying around to support journalism," Talev also said.

    LANSING, MI -- A Republican presidential candidate hasn't won Michigan since 1988, but with 2016 on the horizon, GOP lawmakers are proposing bills that could help a second-place finisher win some electoral college votes here. • Rigging? State Rep. Cindy Gamrat, R-Plainwell, this month reintroduced legislation that would award Michigan's electoral college votes by Congressional District, ditching the winner-take-all model that most states use and diminishing the influence of large cities that can swing a vote. David Weigel of Bloomberg News, calling the bill part of the "electoral college-rigging movement," noted that Republican nominee Mitt Romney would have won nine...

When on this evening's Hardball he invited Margaret Carlson to whack the Bush pinata, there were embarrassing consequences for the toothy ex-Time editor, now languishing at Bloomberg News. Matthews tried his best to tee it up for Carlson: "Margaret, I look at a pattern of events and they come out of people's mouths, conservatives, liberals, whatever: Katrina - competence question.
