Trump:Russia = Bloomberg:China?

My story shows the lengths that the Bloomberg machine will go to in order to avoid offending Beijing. Bloomberg’s company, Bloomberg LP, is so dependent on the vast China market for its business that its lawyers threatened to devastate my family financially if I didn’t sign an NDA silencing me about how Bloomberg News killed a story critical of Chinese Communist Party leaders. – Dr. Leta Hong Fincher, The Intercept, When Bloomberg News’s Reporting on China Was Challenged, Bloomberg Tried to Ruin Me for Speaking Out, February 18 2020.
Caution: this is The Intercept and Snowden's lawyers are involved. But the author is taking considerable risk in publishing this, and therefore I think it is probably true.
