The New York Times recently reported that Bloomberg News decided not to run two investigative articles detailing how the families of Chinese leaders benefit from ties with Chinese tycoons and foreign banks. The Times also said that Bloomberg uses a special computer code to keep sensitive stories about China off its computer terminals there.
The theme is clear: Bloomberg L.P., which owns Bloomberg News, doesn’t want to further piss off China’s rulers and jeopardize sales of its expensive financial data system in the world’s most populous country.
My beautiful niece Elizabeth Selzam got married in the backyard of her parents’ home in Jackson, New Jersey. And I got to watch it live from 7,000 miles away on my MacBook Air.
Because of a choppy connection with Pat’s iPad, I couldn’t hear or see the entire ceremony. However, I could tell from all the beaming faces that it was a wonderful day. I was a little groggy, since the wedding took place at 1:40 in the morning my time, but it was worth staying up for.
