The New York Times reported on a memo sent to Bloomberg staff. The memo John Micklethwait, the editor in chief of Bloomberg, and Justin B. Smith, chief executive of Bloomberg Media, said “In the coming weeks, as Washington transitions from the Obama administration to the incoming Trump administration, our Bloomberg Politics team will transition as well — shifting our focus to the impact of politics and policy on the business and financial world.”
