Bloomberg News’ biases hit

 

NEW YORK: President Donald Trump’s campaign said Monday (Tuesday in Manila) it would no longer give credentials to Bloomberg News reporters to cover campaign events because of coverage “biases,” an accusation that the news organization rejects.

The decision comes a week after the news service’s founder, billionaire Michael Bloomberg, announced he was seeking the Democratic nomination for president.

And Bloomberg News, which the former New York City mayor founded in 1990, said it would not investigate him or his Democratic rivals, but would continue to probe the Trump administration, as the sitting government.


Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale called it a troubling decision to “formalize preferential reporting policies.” He said Bloomberg reporters would no longer be credentialed to cover campaign events until the policy is rescinded.

“As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly,” Parscale said.
