Video: Bloomberg Caught Launching Fake News Video Claiming Biden Endorsement
If Michael Bloomberg Democratic 2020 presidential primary candidate launched a deceiving video claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden who is running against has endorsed his campaign. Liberals were furious that Bloomberg would launch such a deceptive video.
Of course, you won’t hear about the deceptive videos from the mainstream media because Bloomberg has already paid them off. This video and text are exactly what I would call deceitful tactics to cause confusion during an election. If I didn’t know better I would have thought Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed Bloomberg.
The official Twitter account of the Bloomberg campaign “Team Bloomberg” launched the video and it is from a speech Biden gave gushing over how great Michael Bloomberg is. The text on the post read, “Joe Biden has dedicated his life to this country. As a senator, and as a vice president, he has always stood by the side of great men. We are honored to have Joe’s support.”
Joe Biden has dedicated his life to this country.
As a senator, and as a vice president, he has always stood by the side of great men.

This isn’t the first time, on Saturday the New York Times published a piece revealing just how powerful Bloomberg’s network is.
Fox News reports:
One example reported by the Times was a 2015 Center for American Progress report on anti-Muslim bias in the United States that was reportedly changed significantly to omit mention of a Bloomberg mayoral policy after he donated nearly $1.5 million to the group.
“Their draft included a chapter of more than 4,000 words about New York City police surveillance of Muslim communities; Mr. Bloomberg was mentioned by name eight times in the chapter, which was reviewed by The Times,” the paper stated. “When the report was published a few weeks later, the chapter was gone. So was any mention of Mr. Bloomberg’s name.”
The report’s author, Yasmine Taeb, told the Times she was instructed to alter or remove the chapter that was harmful to Bloomberg.
“She said she found it ‘disconcerting’ to be asked to remove the chapter ‘because of how it was going to be perceived by Mayor Bloomberg,’” the Times reported, noting that group disputed Taeb’s account, while “three people with direct knowledge of the situation said Mr. Bloomberg was a factor.”
The Times indicated that Bloomberg had already given the Center for American Progress three grants worth nearly $1.5 million prior to the report and contributed another $400,000 in 2017.
Joe Biden supporters were also furious with Bloomberg.
Just to remind people why people LOVE Biden so… he has class. This on the other hand Bloomberg campaign is gross. https://t.co/Uwo0ppILdt

This is really unethical and definitely keeps me from wanting Bloomberg as the candidate. Keep doing this and you’ll alienate everyone.
