NAT’L – OPINION – These Are The Times People Will Remember

When Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City and the founder of multiple gun-control groups, announced he was running for president, he also said his news service would not investigate him or his rivals who are vying for the Democratic Party’s nomination. He said Bloomberg News, which has over 2,000 employees, would, however, keep investigating and writing opinion pieces about President Donald J. Trump. This means that the many reporters with Bloomberg News have basically been given marching orders to openly behave as operatives of the Democratic Party. This prompted David Martosko, the U.S. politics editor for the Daily Mail, to tweet: “I predict Trump rallies will include this: ‘Is there a Bloomberg reporter back there in the fake news section? They fly on Air Force One every day and chase me around but Little Mike won’t let them investigate ANY Democrats. It’s crooked as hell.’” The possibility of that being said by Trump at a campaign rally was quickly dashed, however, as the Trump administration responded by announcing that Bloomberg’s reporters would not be given press credentials to attend Trump’s campaign events. The thing is, Bloomberg’s anti-journalistic move is not surprising. His gun-control group Everytown for Gun Safety, for example, already won’t speak with reporters who won’t print its propaganda almost verbatim. Everytown isn’t interested in honest, bipartisan fact-finding on issues related to guns any more than Bloomberg is in this campaign. Even Bloomberg’s political website states: “Taking on the Gun Lobby: While other elected officials live in fear of the NRA, Mike has led the effort to stop gun violence and keep communities safe.” This declaration is hardly an attempt to bring people together to find the best ways to reduce homicide rates where they are high, such as in areas with stringent gun-control laws. Rather, it’s a political statement, a declaration from Bloomberg that he intends to do all he can to vanquish his political opponents—meaning you and this civil-liberties association.  [full article]
