Michael Bloomberg Treats Self To Second, Flashier Presidential Campaign

By saying reporters could not investigate Bloomberg or his Democratic rivals, some critics have said this would prevent the news organization from doing in-depth reporting on the campaign.

"Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events", he said.

Marketing campaign supervisor Brad Parscale started by calling Bloomberg Information's resolution "troubling and improper" to "formalize" their biases towards Democrats and towards the President despite the fact that Parascale and his staff "are accustomed to unfair reporting practices" aside from the truth that "most information organizations don't announce their biases so publicly".

NEW YORK-Explaining that he felt he had earned a little indulgence, Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg confirmed Tuesday that he had made a decision to treat himself to a second, flashier presidential campaign.

The New York Times' Executive Editor Dean Baquet released a statement voicing his support for Bloomberg News after President Trump's campaign announced on Monday the media outlet's reporters are now banned from events.

The draw is grueling for all involved, with Group A containing Argentina , Australia , Bolivia , Chile , Paraguay and Uruguay . Australia coach Graham Arnold said his team was relishing the prospect of facing Argentina in Buenos Aires.

Bloomberg's editor-in-chief has denied the accusations, and is claiming the outlet has covered the Trump campaign in a fair and unbiased way since the beginning of his candidacy back in 2015.

In response, the campaign will no longer credential Bloomberg News reporters to cover its events, Parscale said.

Bloomberg noted that the crime and murder rate in NY declined during his tenure, but acknowledged the unintended consequences his policy had on the city's minority population.

In a November 24 memo describing its approach, Bloomberg News editor-in-chief John Micklethwait said that the organization would continue to report on the Trump administration "as the government of the day". "We condemn any action that keeps quality news media from reporting fairly and accurately on the presidency and the leadership of the country".

Micklethwait said the journalists would cover the campaign's news "in much the same way as we have done before", with the exception that articles will explicitly state that Bloomberg News's owner is a candidate. Trump took to Twitter to blast "Mini Mike" Bloomberg for the news organization's coverage decision.
