<p>On Monday, all three network morning shows hyped the possibility of former New York City mayor and liberal activist Michael Bloomberg entering the 2016 presidential race.

<p>The NBC morning show devoted most on it&rsquo;s political coverage to the Bloomberg speculation. At the top of the broadcast, co-host Matt Lauer proclaimed: &ldquo;Will he run? Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg weighing a presidential bid.&nbsp; What would it take for him to jump in? Is it too late?&rdquo;</p>
