Bloomberg’s journalism is second to none, especially their investigative pieces (this article predicted the money-market fund implosion a year before it happened). But their magazine articles – “The Richest Hedge Funds”; “Goldman’s Subsidised Risks”; “Car Crazy in China” – read like a list of “Stuff That We Ran On The Newswire Two Weeks Ago”.
