Matt Winkler, the editor in chief of Bloomberg News, sent out the following email to the news organization’s editorial staff in the wake of reports that it has spiked stories in China that it fears might get it kicked out of the country:
To Bloomberg News:
There have been several misleading reports over the last few days by rival news organizations about our reporting in China.
I want to assure you that there has been no change in policy on how and when we publish our stories. As stated in The Bloomberg Way, our mandate is to provide definitive coverage of economics, markets, companies and industries worldwide, and we will continue to hold all reporting to the highest standards possible.
