Bloomberg News will continue to investigate Trump and his businesses. The decision comes as Bloomberg News grappled with how to cover its own founder and CEO, Michael Bloomberg, who recently launched a presidential bid.In a memo to the Bloomberg News staff, Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait announced that the news outlet will cover their founder's presidential campaign; however, they will not pursue any in-depth investigations of Bloomberg.
Early Monday afternoon, the Trump marketing campaign introduced in an announcement they might not be credentialing anybody from "Bloomberg Information for rallies or different marketing campaign occasions" resulting from the information outlet's coverage of banning their journalists from investigating founder Michael Bloomberg and his 2020 Democratic opponents however insisting they proceed digging into President Donald Trump.

"The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong", Parscale said in a statement.

Micklethwait said the journalists would cover the campaign's news "in much the same way as we have done before", with the exception that articles will explicitly state that Bloomberg News's owner is a candidate.
"Mini Mike Bloomberg has instructed his third rate news organization not to investigate him or any Democrat, but to go after President Trump, only", the president wrote. He has embraced the term "fake news" - initially used by the Clinton campaign to attack pro-Trump coverage - to describe the mainstream media, and has cited studies showing that over 90 percent of press coverage of his administration has been negative.More news: Samoa shutting down all services as death toll rises
