    The only thing that will satisfy the Libbos is if Bloomberg actually admitted that he did this. Short of that, "it's a lie".

    Der Sturmer, nor Pravda said it, so it's a lie...as far as the Libbos are concerned.

    It WAS addressed by Bloomberg in the video. Why wouldn't he deny it if it were not true?

    The video says the exact same thing as the article so there's no point in even discussing it.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    You're essentially asserting the article is lying. Bloomberg addressed it. I don't know why he'd addressed it if it wasn't true to some capacity.

    No, I'm asserting that the video is the exact same thing as the article and therefore there is no reason to even discuss it when we can just discuss the article.

    Regarding the article, I am asserting that it is unreliable as a sole source of information (or in concert with the other article) as I have since the beginning of this thread.

    Bloomberg addressed it.
    Really? When was that quote from? What was that press conference about? What was the question asked? How do you not know that the editorial didn't misrepresent that quote, as is very commonly done in editorials?

    Let's get back on track here. Where are other sources covering this? Are there any?

    Looks like maybe from here. There's a line that says while donated food is exempt from section 1 standards the agency is required to meet section 2 nutrition standards on distributing. From what I gathered on the comments from one of the news stories from a private food bank the ban only applies to city agencies and you can still donate to private ones.

    it's msnbc citing fox news.

    sadly fox doesn't cite any official source for their info. But, they did include this at the very end:

    "The city also cites food-safety issues with donations..."

    Nanny Bloomberg Bans Food Donations to Homeless Shelters: Too Salty! - Michael Bloomberg - Fox Nation

    It's also worth noting that this was done in March and tat it only applies to centers run by NYC. It does not apply to any private shelters.


    Is this journalism hyping to promote page hits?
    idk
    I may be wrong.

    It is, but it's not quite how the headlines make it out to be. Funny thing that.
    I may be wrong.
