Covering Just One Side

Dec 3, 2019

CNN and other news outlets reported President Trump's 2020 campaign announced that it will no longer credential Bloomberg News reporters for its events.  The decision was issued after Bloomberg said it would not conduct investigations into the Democratic presidential candidates but would continue to probe the Trump administration.

Bloomberg’s owner, Michael Bloomberg, recently joined the contest for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

The Shop Talk panelists share their thoughts on the Bloomberg News policy.

Shop Talk is a weekly panel discussion about journalism issues.  This week’s program featured Will Buss, who teaches in the Department of Broadcasting and Journalism at Western Illinois University and advises the student editors at the Western Courier, the students at student radio station The Dog, and the WIU chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists; Rajvee Subramanian, who teaches in the Department of Broadcasting and Journalism at Western Illinois University; and TSPR News Director Rich Egger.
