|Warren Says Bloomberg Should Divest From His Company’s News Division ||Belichick cuts presser short after AB questions |
(Bloomberg) -- Elizabeth Warren called on fellow Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg to divest from the news division of his company “so there’s no question about his influence” over its coverage of 2020 candidates.“If Michael Bloomberg wants to be the Democratic nominee, he should let reporters do their jobs and report on him, and everyone else, as they see fit,” Warren said in a series of tweets on Wednesday.Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News. He has said he’ll put his company in a trust or sell it if he wins the election.A spokesperson for Bloomberg News had no comment on Warren’s tweets.Warren referred to a policy that Bloomberg Editor in Chief John Micklethwait set out when Michael Bloomberg announced his candidacy.

The news organization’s investigative team would continue to investigate the Trump administration as the government of the day.The Massachusetts senator said the policy “puts reporters in an impossible situation and undermines a free press” and that Bloomberg should change the policy and divest.Warren’s tweets referred to a Federal Election Commission complaint filed by Mark Green, who once ran against Bloomberg for New York mayor. Green’s complaint said the news agency’s coverage of the 2020 presidential campaign amounted to a contribution to Bloomberg’s presidential race.Bloomberg’s campaign did not respond immediately to a request for comment.To contact the reporter on this story: Mark Niquette in Columbus at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at firstname.lastname@example.org, Craig GordonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
