“Re­porters at Bloomberg News are on edge af­ter their boss an­nounced that if he chooses to run for pres­i­dent in 2020 — a de­ci­sion he will have to fi­nal­ize rel­a­tively soon — it could mean the end of the news out­let’s po­lit­i­cal cov­er­age,” re­ports Buz­zFeed, adding that bil­lion­aire Michael Bloomberg — cur­rently worth $50 bil­lion and run­ning as a Demo­crat — broached this idea dur­ing a Ra­dio Iowa in­ter­view.

“The in­ter­view quickly caused para­noia within Bloomberg’s news divi­sion, ac­cord­ing to sources fa­mil­iar with the mat­ter. The pol­i­tics team, in par­tic­u­lar, has been ran­kled by what Bloomberg said about how in-house po­lit­i­cal re­porters should han­dle his po­ten­tial cam­paign (not at all),” Buz­zFeed noted.
