Recommended: Vanity Fair’s ‘Hell in the Hot Zone’

The October 2014 edition of Vanity Fair has a chilling but informative article by Jeffrey E.

CNN, Bloomberg Digital Teams Prepare for Elections

On May 4, 2014, Bloomberg Media Group CEO Justin B. Smith and Bloomberg News Editor-In-Chief Matthew Winkler announced through Bloomberg Now that Bloomberg Politics would make its debut in 2014. It is scheduled to launch on October 6, 2014, and gear up to cover politics in the United States leading up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As the Huffington Post reported on September 2, 2014, the digital site “will feature political coverage on the Web, mobile, TV, radio and in print…”

Meanwhile, on September 11, 2014, Politico reported that “CNN's Politics Digital team, led by former POLITICO managing editor Rachel Smolkin, hired three POLITICO journalists on Wednesday (September 10, 2014): Congress editor Steven Sloan, deputy breaking news editor Jedd Rosche and POLITICO Pro’s Eric Bradner, who will serve as a breaking news reporter.” You can find more here.
