Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg reannounced a $500-million effort to eradicate coal and natural gas use in the U.S. on June 6. ABC, CBS and NBC news didn’t even flinch. That night the three broadcast evening shows made no time for the billionaire media mogul’s massive spending to shut down the rest of the nation’s coal plants by 2030 and start targeting natural gas plants. They also haven’t reported it since, much less scrutinized it even though he’s a high-profile liberal donor, media owner and maybe former politician.
The current economic expansion could “make history” if it lasts through July, but Bloomberg BusinessWeek pooh-poohed its 10th anniversary saying “no one’s partying” in the June 10 issue.
In spite of growing wages, extremely low unemployment and nearly 3 percent economic growth in 2018, the liberal media are becoming obsessed with recession. It didn’t matter that CFOs were confident the U.S. economy “will not experience a recession” in 2019. They were fixated by recession prospects in March anyway.
Every. Single. Day.
What do Bill Gates, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders have in common? They all want the rich to pay higher taxes. Bloomberg News appears to be on board with their goal.
“Gates is saying what the Democratic candidates appear to be thinking: Go for the capital gains rate,” claimed Bloomberg reporter Lynnley Browning on March 12. The story downplayed the dramatic tax proposals of both presidential candidates and turned to liberal tax experts promoting tax hikes. It also failed to include any conservative economists arguing against tax hikes.
Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg won’t be running for president in 2020, but the billionaire media mogul has vowed to continue trying to eradicate the coal industry. He’s also promised to target oil and gas.
Left-wing Think Progress called that admission the “bombshell the media missed.” ABC, CBS and NBC barely noticed it. In the midst of Bloomberg’s announcement not to run for the highest office, he promised a “new, even more ambitious phase” of his anti-coal campaign.
The Drudge Report is highlighting a piece by Politico's Marc Caputo headlined "Michael Bloomberg’s $500 million anti-Trump moonshot: The sum represents a floor, not a ceiling, on the billionaire’s potential spending to defeat the president in 2020." Question for media critics: How do the journalists across the "Bloomberg News' empire not have a massive conflict of interest in covering anything related to Trump?
Media mogul and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg may or may not be running for president in 2020. But in either case he’s building what The Atlantic called “the most powerful political organization in America” designed to defeat President Donald Trump.
He already has a tremendously powerful media empire. It includes TV, magazine, radio, online and industry publications. Bloomberg News publishes 5,000 stories a day in 120 countries. A Nexis search for the past year, which only accesses transcripts for some Bloomberg media products, had 2,947 hits that mentioned President Donald Trump.
If there’s one thing liberal media love, it’s the idea of raising taxes on the rich. It’s something they have in common with freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. As a self-identifying Democratic-Socialist, Ocasio-Cortez has plenty of expensive ideas for the government, including a Green New Deal she suggested paying for with much higher taxes on the wealthiest.
Political watchers are well aware that former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is probably running for president in 2020. That makes his media empire’s attacks on President Donald Trump more concerning than ever. The cover story of the Jan. 7, issue of Bloomberg Businessweek shows a dejected looking Trump with his red tie extending all the way to the ground. “The Trump Slump,” the headline read. “Why the market said goodbye to the Trump Bump.”
It's probably one of the biggest business stories right now that you haven't heard about both because the mainstream media has downplayed it and because the reports came just the public's attention was captured by last minute Christmas Eve shopping . And if you are aware of it, you haven't seen the name of a certain president who was instrumental in making it happen. So what is it?
The yuuuuge announcement by China that it is cutting or eliminating tariffs on 700 of their import items. And why did the Chinese do that? Was it out of the kindness of their hearts? Or was it because a certain president applied pressure upon them which the MSM denounced as a trade war?
Billions of dollars are being spent on both sides to influence the outcome of the 2018 midterm elections — much of it from major media figures.
The day before the election, the Los Angeles Times (LAT) profiled the 12 biggest spenders trying to “determine control of Congress” based on trackable political donations to candidates, committees and outside groups. Giving to nonprofits or 501(c)4s were not included in the analysis.
Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell expressed optimism about the “extraordinary times” for the U.S. economy right now at an event with business economists on Oct. 2.
Powell said, “The economy is strong, unemployment is near 50-year lows, and inflation is roughly at our 2 percent objective, and the baseline outlook of many forecasters in and outside the Fed is for more of the same.”
