Trump campaign denies press credentials to Bloomberg News

Source: BBC

After Mr Bloomberg's official entry to the 2020 race last week, Bloomberg said it would stop critically covering the Democratic presidential candidates.

But the outlet said it would continue to investigate US President Donald Trump's administration.

Mr Trump's campaign called the Bloomberg decision proof of "bias".

"Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events," said Mr Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, in a statement on Monday.

1. Sue them. . . .

If Pres Obama and Clinton had to endure fake news (Murdoch) ya would think the chosen one can endure Bloomberg but alas, shithole and the WH and the rest of the cronies are thin skinned. They are beyond cowards.

Bullies r us, but can't take the same shit they dish out.

4. And look what "journalism" the White House is happy with: antisemitic hatred

Far-Right Pastor Calls Impeachment A ‘Jew Coup,’ Begs Trump To ‘Wake Up’

Jewish Twitter is erupting in anger over the latest incendiary video from an anti-Semitic website, this one asserting that the impeachment inquiry into President Trump was a “Jew coup.”
...
Wiles and TruNews are well known to hate-watchers as purveyors of anti-Semitic, homophobic, Islamophobic and racist rants, as well as conspiracy theories involving lizards. Yet earlier this year the site scored a five-minute interview with Donald Trump Jr., and last fall the president himself called on a representative of TruNews at a news conference.

It is unclear whether TruNews has a White House press credential or regularly attends such news conferences or political rallies. The news conference where the site’s representative, who identified himself as Edward Szall, asked a question, was mainly about Trump’s embattled Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and came on the same day the president met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel.

Szall’s was a softball question: “Can you give us any more preview of what this great deal, the peace deal — “ he began before Trump jumped in to answer. The Twitter account known as @elderofziyon, which is among the most active in denouncing the new TruNews video, demanded: “Why does the @WhiteHouse allow blatantly antisemitic organization @TruNews to be part of its @whpresscorps?”

6. Another good reason to stop taxpayer funding of campaign rallies for....

flights, security, etc. Hell, he already has the bully pulpit for free.

This shocks me that a Republican would deny an American corporation the right to increase revenues as it pleases.

Surely this violates one of Raygun's sacred Rethug Commandments..... .......

8. they never give press conferences anymore...

and they basically are banning any reading material news-wise.

9. I'm going to have to break with the consensus here and say this was DUMB of Bloomberg News

Shouldn't have SAID shit, should've just done it ... if you were going to ...

And I'm not even sure I agree with the decision to act in this biased fashion (as a top-shelf news org, not some Breitbart-like outfit) to begin with.

I'm leaning towards not ...
