    Bloomberg is a chameleon and opportunist and a fraud
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

So whatever their agenda is--political or otherwise--you are stuck with it.

    Journalism is not what it used to be. They just refuse to acknowledge that fact.
    I actually think media has always been like this to a large extent. There has been a change in the form of media over time so that changes the relationship a little bit, but if you go and look at media decades ago they were using misleading titles to bait people in. It's just that now due to the internet, there is too much competition structured too poorly, and we can see the bait so much easier now. In the past, few would subscribe to every paper, for instance, but now we can go online and see what's being said so much easier.

    I don't think the UK is any better with their media tbh. I've watched/read a lot of their stuff from the BBC to LBC to The Sun to many others. There's no reason to put it on a pedestal.

    I didn't put it on a pedestal. I even noted they were slanted left. However, since they aren't subject to the direct, immediate effects of certain events here in the US, they have a more objective view.
    I never lose.... I either win, or I learn.

    A candidate does not have to give access to anyone that wants to cover his campaign.
    Many news sources will not be allowed into events because they are smaller ad there is limited amount of space and resources. Bloomberg is a private investment rag whose owner is running in the opposing party primary.

    Therefore there is no need for discussion. If the left wing media does not like it then they can stay away as well. After all they are in the tank for whomever the left produces and are propaganda sources not news sources.

    Question, If, and that's a huge IF, Bloomberg wins the Presidency, will he totally divest himself of all his holdings, especially Bloomberg News ?? If he doesn't, will the emoluments crowd file suit/s ??
