And rightfully so, IMO.


Trump Campaign Says It Will Shut Out Bloomberg News From Events

(Bloomberg) -- The Trump campaign announced Monday that it intends to exclude Bloomberg News reporters from its events, including the president’s political rallies, after the news organization said it wouldn’t investigate Democratic presidential candidates.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement that the Bloomberg News policy, enacted after Bloomberg LP founder and majority owner Michael Bloomberg announced he would run for president, is unfair to President Donald Trump. In response, the campaign will no longer credential Bloomberg News reporters to cover its events, he said.

“The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong,” Parscale said in a statement. “Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events.”

Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said on Twitter that her organization also would no longer credential Bloomberg News journalists.

Trump assailed both Bloomberg News and the New York Times in a tweet issued late Monday from London, after the Times’ executive editor, Dean Baquet, criticized the president’s campaign for the decision to exclude Bloomberg reporters from events.

“We condemn any action that keeps quality news media from reporting fairly and accurately on the presidency and the leadership of the country,” Baquet said.
