They have no where to run now…
NPR recently released a report stating that “Six years ago, Bloomberg News killed an investigation into the wealth of Communist Party elites in China, fearful of repercussions by the Chinese government.”
According to the NPR report, a Chinese ambassador came upon an embarrassing story and warned Bloomberg to not publish the story. The story ended up being published, but the reporter started to receiving death threats.
“The problem with Bloomberg began when ‘the reporting team pursued the next chapter, focusing on Chinese leaders’ ties to the country’s richest man, Wang Jianlin.'”
“This story was killed. It never ran.”
Eventually the full reasons were disclosed by Matthew Winkler who was Bloomberg’s editor-in-chief and co-founder.
He stated, “It has to be done with a strategic framework and a tactical method that is … smart enough to allow us to continue and not run afoul of the Nazis who are in front of us and behind us everywhere. And that’s who they are. And we should have no illusions about it.“
