For all the liberal smears against Fox News claiming they’re “state-run media,” it has become clear that that exactly what Bloomberg News would become if former Mayor Michael Bloomberg wins in 2020. While ABC, CBS, and NBC spent Sunday evening and Monday hyping the billionaire’s new presidential campaign, they ignored how Bloomberg News had been ordered to not investigate their owner or his Democratic opponents, and to keep the pressure on President Trump. Some might argue it was the weaponization of a media outlet for personal gain.

During NBC Nightly News on Monday evening, chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell enjoyed announcing Bloomberg’s candidacy: “After years of will he or won't he? Three-term New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a former Republican turned independent, now a Democrat, in a Virginia diner today now a presidential candidate.

Money. Money, money, money. He has more of it than any other candidate,” boasted CBS political correspondent Ed O’Keefe on CBS This Morning. “So he doesn’t have some of the hurdles that the others do. After initially ruling out a run earlier this year, Bloomberg is officially in, running as a moderate Democrat.” NBC’s Today also falsely labeled him a “moderate.”
