My 2 Cents: Mike Bloomberg’s Controversial Order To His News Employees
Fascinating order put out today by newly minted Democratic candidate for president Mike Bloomberg.
The 77- year-old New York billionaire ordered his considerable news gathering operation to maintain its policy of not investigating his own personal life or finances, and he extended that protection to his Democratic opponents.
But the Bloomberg news team will continue to investigate President Trump, his administration and his campaign.
Well, you know that didn't sit well with the President, so his campaign banned all Bloomberg reporters from campaign rallies and events.
Can't really blame the President for that reaction.
Bloomberg should have just recused himself from news making decisions until after the campaign, but that's not what he wanted.
He's reserving the right to sic his news team on the Trump campaign.
Isn't this kind of what they're trying to impeach President Trump on, using his clout to get someone else to dig up dirt on his political opponent?
And despite polling at 3.4 percent, Bloomberg must believe, considering his multi-million-dollar ad buy, that it will eventually propel him to a mano a mano showdown against President Trump.
