Billionaire Mike Bloomberg was asked to comment on his new policy banning all Bloomberg News reporters from investigating Democrats this week; saying they “just have to learn to live with some things.”
“They just have to learn to live with some things,” Bloomberg told CBS News. “They get a paycheck. But with your paycheck comes some restrictions and responsibilities.”

Bloomberg entered the Democratic presidential race at 6% in a recent poll; topping fading challenger Kamala Harris but falling far-behind the top-tier candidates across the country.
“The survey released on Monday found that support for the former mayor ticked up from 3 percent to 6 percent among likely Democratic voters and Democratic-leaning independents,” reports The Hill.
The poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden in the lead with 31% of support from Democratic voters; followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders at 15%, Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 10%, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 9%.
