Michael Bloomberg Responds to Criticism He's Trying to Buy Election Belichick cuts presser short after AB questions

Michael Bloomberg Responds to Criticism He's Trying to Buy Election(Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg responded to criticism from Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and other rivals that he’s trying to buy the election by self-financing his campaign, saying they had the same opportunity in life to build up a fortune as he did.The former New York mayor said in an interview on “CBS This Morning” that he didn’t come from a wealthy family and earned his money by building up his business. He said his rivals, too, “had a chance to go out and make a lot of money.”“I’m doing exactly the same thing they’re doing, except that I am using my own money,” Bloomberg said. “They’re using somebody else’s money and those other people expect something from them. Nobody gives you money if they don’t expect something. I don’t want to be bought.”The former New York mayor said he intends to entirely self-fund his campaign and has already booked more than $64 million in television ads since announcing his candidacy on Nov. 24, according to Advertising Analytics, which tracks political commercials.@MikeBloomberg responds to some of his opponents’ claims that he’s trying to ‘buy the election.’“I'm doing exactly the same thing they're doing, except that I am using my own money … I don’t want to be bought.” https://t.co/Rqh3mnNsCV pic.twitter.com/xFo7UYPMWJ— CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) December 6, 2019 Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.Bloomberg was asked about remarks by Democratic Senator Cory Booker, who is African-American, that with the departure of Senator Kamala Harris, the race has "more billionaires than black people."Bloomberg responded that Booker was "well-spoken. He’s got some good ideas."Booker reacted in an interview with Sirius XM Radio’s "Signal Boost" show, saying he was "taken aback.""It’s sort of stunning at times that we are still revisiting these sort of tired tropes," Booker said. "Folks don’t understand and the fact that they don’t understand is problematic."Bloomberg also defended the company’s policy of not investigating him or other Democrats while continuing to investigate President Donald Trump, saying that Bloomberg News carries coverage from many top news outlets so those kinds of stories are available to its readers.“People have said to me, ‘How can you investigate yourself?”’ he said on CBS. “And I said, ‘I don’t think you can.’"He also said in response to concerns that Bloomberg journalists can’t investigate Democrats by saying, “They get a paycheck, but with your paycheck comes some restrictions and responsibilities.”(Updates with Bloomberg comments on Booker starting in sixth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Mark Niquette in Columbus at mniquette@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at wbenjaminson@bloomberg.net, Kevin WhitelawFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Cincinnati Views and Opinions
 
The Importance of Free Press in a Democracy

Before we can understand the importance of a free press in a democracy, we need to grasp what it means to have a free press. The Cambridge Dictionary tells us that a free press allows all media outlets to express whatever opinions they desire. That means, it says, that they are enabled to “criticize the government and other organizations.” So why would that be relevant in a democracy?

Unfair Questions or Democracy At Work ?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” -- The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
