President Donald Trumps campaign says it will no longer give passes to Bloomberg News reporters to cover its rallies and other campaign events.
Campaign spokesman Brad Parscale said Monday that Bloomberg, in the wake of founder Michael Bloombergs own Democratic presidential bid, has formalized preferential reporting policies. Bloombergs Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait says thats not true.
When Bloomberg announced his candidacy, Micklethwait said his news organization would not investigate the boss or other Democratic candidates. But he said the Trump administration would continue to be covered.
Some critics said that has put Bloomberg reporters in a difficult position, made more so by the Trump campaigns announcement on Monday.
