    From the "Michael Bloomberg is owned by China", files: When Bloomberg News’s Reporting on China Was Challenged, Bloomberg Tried to Ruin Me for Speaking Out

    I AM ONE of the many women Mike Bloomberg’s company tried to silence through nondisclosure agreements. The funny thing is, I never even worked for Bloomberg.

    But 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

    What the other side of this story seeing this one was written by a Warren supporter.

    Leta Hong Fincher is a journalist and scholar who has won several awards for her reporting on China, including the Society of Professional Journalists Sigma Delta Chi Award. She is the author of “Betraying Big Brother: The Feminist Awakening in China” and “Leftover Women: The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in China.” She is a supporter of the presidential campaign of Elizabeth Warren, and has both donated to her and volunteered for her.

    Hee husband was an employee of Bloomberg when he wrote the article, not a freelancer.

    Work performed by employees on the job are the intellectual property of the employer. I think in this case Bloomberg was correct to say that this was their property and that her husband could not publish it or promote the information elsewhere, whether Bloomberg decided to kill the story or not.

    When the family was threatened she should have gone to the US embassy in China. They would have helped her family, protection if needed, had US attorneys contact Bloomberg's attorneys and sorted it all out.
    Something just doesn't smell right about this story.

    What a fascinating choice for you guys come November. A Russian owned republican or a Chinese owned democrat.
