Editor’s note: I have been compiling a very detailed expose on Michael Bloomberg. However, I need more time to finish writing it, because there are mountains of issues to remember. His mayoral tenure has been almost forgotten. A very detailed article is coming up. However, I wanted to give you this sneak peak.
Michael Bloomberg at Trump’s wedding
Recently, Michael Bloomberg started his presidential campaign by carpet-bombing all the airways to air his commercials every 5 seconds. Sometimes, we get two or three commercials with a Tom Steyer commercial stuck in the middle. He plans on spending his own $300 million. He is worth $60 Billion and can afford to buy this election. We must make sure that our fellow citizens, for the sake of this world, hear the truth about Michael Bloomberg.
However, they won’t hear the truth from corporate media. Corporate Media have been acting like lap dogs and propagandists. One such grotesque display was from Meet the Press where Chuck Todd seriously asked the question," Is there anyone to the left of him on Climate change and guns?"
The correct answer to that question would involve Mussolini.
Recently, MSNBC threw a conniption when Nina Turner called Michael Bloomberg an "oligarch."
While MSNBC pontificates on why billionaires are good for society, and how it is unrealistic to pass any measure that helps the poor, even moderate remedies, I am here to do their jobs. Hopefully, together we can kill any presidential ambitions the billionaire ex-mayor Michael Bloomberg.
A beer-drinking frat boy and indifferent engineering student at Johns Hopkins University, he headed to Wall Street after an ego and résumé polish at Harvard Business School. At Salomon Brothers, he thrived in the fierce, profane world of the trading pits. Second-guessing his bosses a few times too often, he was forced out in 1981, though with a $10 million parachute. Bloomberg was able to see that the clubby world of high finance was breaking down—that technology could open up the marketplace. He started a company to rent special computers that funneled financial data to stock traders and analysts. The computers were called Bloomberg Boxes, or just Bloombergs, and he has made billions off the information empire they spawned. (Bloomberg is low-key, but not exactly self-effacing: he called his $20 billion company, in which he still owns a controlling interest, Bloomberg L.P.; he named his financial-news service Bloomberg News, and his memoir is entitled "Bloomberg by Bloomberg.")
He employed the panopticon model of office buildings, which is frequently found in prisons. Every employee had to wear identity badges at all times; a fingerprint identification is required to log on to computers. Cameras survey the newsroom to monitor the employees. Even their keystrokes were monitored. However, this had nothing to do with securing client data.
According to a 2013, QZ article, "The ability to see data about terminal usage by customers was considered an open secret. A Bloomberg TV anchor mentioned it on the air in 2011, and an initial analysis by the company is said to show that several hundred reporters took advantage of the access." Mayor Bloomberg, not only did not protect his customers' data, but he handled it haphazardly. His giant prison-like regimentation was only used to monitor his employees.
For writers at Bloomberg Inc, the "Bloomberg Way" was stifling. Frequently, they said,"They regiment every little reporting style as to take away the human element from reporting.”
In 2001, when Michael Bloomberg, was elected mayor, he was determined to become the CEO of New York and New Yorkers were to observe the role of his employees.
His mayoral style was especially disturbing. He said, "I've spent my career thinking about the strategies that institutions in the private sector should pursue, and the more I learn about this institution called New York City, the more I see the ways in which it needs to think like a private company."
However, cities are not private companies. Cities have residents and the mayor's job is to improve the living conditions for the residents within the city.
If New York City is a business, it isn't Wal-Mart -- it isn't trying to be the lowest-priced product in the market. It's a high-end product, maybe even a luxury product. New York offers tremendous value, but only for those companies able to capitalize on it.' - Michael Bloomberg, 2003
And this was only the beginning.
