About a week ago, after it became clear that Michael Bloomberg would be in the running for the Democrat nomination in 2020, the company owns, Bloomberg News, issued a statement about how their reporters would cover his candidacy and that of other 2020 Dems. Or rather, how they won’t cover them:

Bloomberg News said they won’t be “investigating” the campaign of their founder or other Dem candidates, but they would continue to probe and report on President Trump’s campaign. However, the Trump White House had something to say about that:
President Trump's 2020 campaign announced it will no longer credential Bloomberg News for events after the outlet said it would not conduct investigations into the Democratic presidential candidates, but would continue to probe the Trump administration. https://t.co/DYeH4ADIJ3

Honestly that’s fair. Bloomberg already announced they wouldn’t be unbiased.
