from The Intercept:

Then Bloomberg killed the story at the last minute, and the company fired my husband in November after comments by Bloomberg News editor-in-chief Matt Winkler were leaked. “If we run the story, we’ll be kicked out of China,” Winkler reportedly said on a company call.

Mike Bloomberg, then New York City mayor and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, was asked on November 12, 2013, about reports that his company had self-censored out of fear of offending the Chinese government and he dismissed the question.

“Nobody thinks that we’re wusses and not willing to stand up and write stories that are of interest to the public and that are factually correct,” Bloomberg told a press conference.

Bloomberg's company, not Mike Bloomberg. He was running NYC at the time, not his company. There's doubt he even knew about the story when questioned.

This is not Trump munching chicken and ordering vendettas against his 'enemies'. I know you don't like Bloomberg, but please stick to something substantial. (He's making enough campaign speaking errors. Stick with those.)

You mean like his constant attempts to reduce SS benefits and raise the retirement age?

I feel like the debate took the wind out of Bloomberg's sails. Nobody on Facebook or Twitter is even discussing him.

He clearly only operates well as the only big fish in the room. He can't hold his own when there's competition...
