Documents show that these propagandists regulate Bloomberg LP and have full control over his access to the Chinese market. Bloomberg is a big fan of China, President Xi Jinping and other officials in Beijing. His competitors aren’t involved in the business to this extent.
Breitbart News is the first media to reveal images that confirm Bloomberg’s meetings. You can get the details in the Breaking the News and they were first posted to an official Chinese state media website. The US has yet to publish the photos.
These findings are the result of a year-long investigation into corporate media. Several American media outlets have no issue currying favor with the Communist regime.
Bloomberg and CCP discussed “cooperation in the field media,” “the introduction of Chinese stories to the world,” and “strengthening media cooperation between China and the US.”
Foreign distributors of financial data in China have to seek licensure from the State Council Information Office (SCIO). This agency is under the auspices of the State Council in China.
Bloomberg’s license is renewed every couple of years, so he’d rather cozy up to top Chinese officials.
China’s SCIO is also known as the Central Office of Foreign Propaganda.
Here are more details of Bloomberg’s meetings:
- On August 19, 2015: Michael Bloomberg met with Jiang Jianguo, director of the State Council Information Office (SCIO) and deputy director of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China; the latter office is the CCP’s department, which makes Jianguo the vice minister of propaganda. According to the Chinese government, they discussed “international exchange and cooperation in the field of media.”
December 21, 2015: Bloomberg LP global executive vice president Kevin Sheekey met with Jiang as well as Zhang Fuhai and Zhang Hongbin, respectively the director general and deputy director general of the SCIO Internet Affairs Bureau. They run an arm of the Chinese regime that deals with Internet censorship. Sheekey would become Michael Bloomberg’s campaign manager for his 2020 presidential run.
On July 13, 2016: According to China’s SCIO, Bloomberg executives met in Beijing with Chinese propaganda minister Jiang, this time to discuss “Belt and Road” strategic cooperation and the South China Sea. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is China’s global project to gain economic dominance throughout the world via a massive network of infrastructure projects bankrolled by Beijing. BRI deeply intertwines China to other countries, particularly developing nations, via a network of investments. Some China skeptics consider the ambitious project essentially a “debt trap” scheme where nations ultimately default on loans extended to them, which allows the CCP to gain economic and political control over them. Often the Chinese are able to use their new economic leverage to expand their military capabilities in a given region. Beijing has staked a claim to much of the South China Sea, despite the fact that much of that territory is legally sovereign to Taiwan, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. China has little regard for the fact that the United States considers this behavior illegal; in fact, America’s position makes China furious. Beijing is engaging in similar behavior in the East China Sea, where they illegally claim territory that belongs to Japan, among other nations. Ecuador, Chile, and Argentina are among several other countries that have asserted China has violated their sovereign waters. Further details of the conversation between Bloomberg brass and the CCP aren’t public.
June 7, 2017: Kevin Sheekey, who was then vice president of government relations at Bloomberg LP, again met with communist propaganda minister Jiang. According to the Chinese government, “they talked about China-U.S. media exchanges and cooperation, the introduction of Chinese stories to the world, and efforts to promote healthy and stable relations between the two countries.”
July 11, 2018: Otis Bilodeau, senior executive editor of Bloomberg Asia Pacific, met with the vice minister of the SCIO, Guo Weimin, one of the top Communist Party spokesmen.
April 13, 2018: John Micklethwait, editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News, met with the vice minister of the SCIO. From a Beijing readout: “The two sides held discussions on strengthening media cooperation between China and the U.S., enhancing understanding between Chinese and Western citizens, presenting China to the world, as well as China-U.S. relations.” In other words, the CCP claims that Bloomberg’s top editor advised a top communist official on how to “present China to the world.”
May 9, 2018: Jiang Jianguo, the deputy propaganda minister, met again with Sheekey in Beijing. This time they discussed, according to Beijing, “expanding communication and cooperation between the media of China and the U.S., promoting understandings between Chinese and western citizens, as well as China-U.S. relations.”
Michael Bloomberg’s future campaign manager had a meeting with a top CCP propagandist. The Chinese government confirmed this meeting, too. They talked about the cooperation between the US and China, emphasizing their media establishments.
It’s worse than we thought.
In 2013, then-Bloomberg News editor-in-chief Matthew Winkler likened people in the Chinese ruling to Nazis. However, he said that if “Nazis” felt judged, they would have kicked journalists out of China.
In 2019, Bloomberg said “Xi Jinping is not a dictator.” Bloomberg compliments China’s environmental policies. Did he forget that Chinese release the most carbon dioxide of any country on earth?
