The shock news of the day, or not, is that Bloomberg’s reporters have been spying on their customers.
Or that’s the suspicion anyway, and was kicked off by Goldman Sachs complaint that a reporter from Bloomberg had telephoned to find out why an employee of the bank had not logged on to their Bloomberg terminal yet. Had they lost their job?
Apparently, reporters at Bloomberg did the same in 2012 when trying to find out what was going on at JPMorgan over their London Whale incident. There are also concerns that they may have been tracking Tim Geithner, US Treasury Secretary, and Ben Bernanke, Head of the Federal Reserve.
