For all the liberal smears against Fox News claiming they’re “state-run media,” it has become clear that's exactly what Bloomberg News would become if former Mayor Michael Bloomberg wins in 2020. While ABC, CBS, and NBC spent Sunday evening and Monday hyping the billionaire’s new presidential campaign, they ignored how Bloomberg News had been ordered to not investigate their owner or his Democratic opponents, and to keep the pressure on President Trump. Some might argue it was the weaponization of a media outlet for personal gain.
Liberal billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided to toss his hat into the already-crowded Democratic Party presidential primary race all at the expense of the credibility of a major news outlet he owns. To deal with the apparent conflict of interest, “Bloomberg News” announced it would not be investigating their owner or his Democratic Party rivals, but “will report on Michael Bloomberg’s 2020 presidential campaign,” Politico reported November 24.
Perhaps Bloomberg writer Hannah Elliott might want to consider shedding her social justice warrior armor while reviewing films such as the popular Ford v Ferrari because her obsession about "diversity" absurdly clouds her review. Elliott's antagonism to what she sees as an unforgiveable depiction of the white male oriented world of car racing in the 1960s begins with the title, "Ford v Ferrari Depicts a Generation of Car Guys That’s Best Left Behind," and continues throughout her SJW hit piece disguised as a review.
Every once in a while, the liberal media is compelled to make a concession, even if it doesn’t serve their recession narrative. Liberal outlet Bloomberg News tweeted Nov. 17 that “The stock market seems to like Donald Trump more than any president since the 1950s,” and proceeded to place the president in fourth place behind former presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower.
Bloomberg News has relatively ignored reporting on their owner. Could that be because of a self-imposed gag rule on Bloomberg reporters? The New York Times reported a Nov. 14 story detailing liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s history of negative statements about women. The Times said that “the comments revealed a cruder side of Mr. Bloomberg, now 77 and a potential presidential candidate.”
The media are opposed to anything that remotely resembles a neutral approach. So when Facebook decided to leave political ads from politicians untouched, the liberal news media declared war. Head of Facebook News Campbell Brown wrote in an Oct. 30 Facebook post that she was “astonished at the reaction by other journalists to Facebook's decision not to police speech from political candidates.”
Remember all the (hopeful) recession talk recently by many in the mainstream media who found it hard to hide their desire for bad economic times to harm President Donald Trump's 2020 re-election? Some, such as Bill Maher didn't even try to hide their hope for a recession. In fact Maher was publicly hoping for such a recession to stop Trump. Well, sad news for them but very happy news for most others. Bloomberg News on September 20 reported that such dire economic hype is not born out by the economic data in "Hold That Recession: U.S. Indicators Are Trouncing Forecasts."
News consumers everywhere should prepare for the onslaught of climate change stories ahead of the UN climate summit next week.
Instigated by Columbia Journalism Review and The Nation, more than 250 media entities joined forces to foster urgency and action regarding the climate “crisis” and devote extra time to what CJR claimed was “the defining story of our time.” Partners included CBS, PBS Newshour, Bloomberg, AFP, Getty Images, Adweek, CQ and Roll Call, The Guardian, Newsweek, Rolling Stone and many more including a huge number of local media.
When 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren first proposed an annual wealth tax, she claimed it would be just “a little piece,” “a little portion” of the “bazillion” they’ve made.New evidence from her own economists revealed that her constitutionally-challenged two percent (or higher) annual wealth tax would take far more than a little. Try half or more.
On Wednesday night, news broke that fake news victim and Department of Labor official Leif Olson was reinstated to his position in the Wage and Hour Division after a hatchet job by senior Bloomberg Law reporter Ben Penn forced him out last week. Despite Bloomberg saying they took the false claim of anti-Semitism out of the headline, they refused to retract the story and/or apologize to Olson and only sought to “clarify”.
In the world of hacks like Jeremy Peters and Brian Stelter, only journalists should be able to ruin someone’s life over past statements or offensive lines that were either harmless or sarcastic. Unfortunately, that happened Tuesday as Bloomberg’s Ben Penn forced Labor Department official Leif Olson to resign after just 18 days because, according to Penn, had “a history of advancing controversial conservative and faith-based causes in court” and writing “a 2016 Facebook post suggesting the Jewish-controlled media ‘protects their own
Objectivity and truth-telling are no longer the most “sacred” responsibilities of the news media, at least according to the far-left The Nation magazine. It’s now … climate change. “We see Covering Climate Now as a fulfillment of journalism’s most sacred responsibilities, which are to inform people and foster constructive debate about common challenges and opportunities,” The Nation wrote on Aug. 28.
