In November of last year, shortly after Michael Bloomberg made it known that he’d be throwing his hat into the ring for the Dem nomination, the Bloomberg News editorial board announced that their coverage would not include any investigations of Bloomberg, his family or his foundations.
Today Bloomberg dropped out of the race, so it’s back to “journalism” for Bloomberg News:
NEW: Bloomberg News editor-in-chief John Micklethwait announced that the newsroom would return to its "normal coverage" of the 2020 election after Mike Bloomberg suspended his campaign today, CNN reports. https://t.co/n5tMYU5WAL

New Bloomberg News memo: "Now that Mike has said he is leaving the race for President, we will return to our normal coverage of the election; we will follow exactly the same coverage rules for the Democratic presidential candidates" and Trump. ?? pic.twitter.com/N6lqIWNoiR

What…what is the "normal coverage"? You mean like what journalists do? https://t.co/jMUQKAl99E

Last month Bloomberg News reported that Michael Bloomberg was “in a two-man race for the Democratic presidential nomination,” so hopefully by “normal coverage” BN means “remotely accurate coverage.”
One final question:
Bloomberg just endorsed Biden…so how does this work? Anyone, Bueller? https://t.co/09IeJ6e4Qn
