Big Worry at Bloomberg View: 3-D Printing

The biggest stories this week have been about a trio of government scandals, one involving the IRS, another with the DOJ and a third with the September attack in Benghazi, Libya. But those aren’t the most of Bloomberg View‘s concerns. The 3-D printer is.

Over the last four days, the Bloomberg View daily morning newsletter blast was sent out with staff editorials on 3-D printing as their top story:

  • “Your Future Will Be Manufactured on a 3-D Printer,” 5/13
  • “That 3-D Printed Gun? It’s Just the Start,” 5/14
  • “How 3-D Printing Could Disrupt the Economy of the Future,” 5/15
  • “3-D Printing: the Ultimate Intellectual-Property Threat?” 5/16

To be fair, the Bloomberg publications are primarily financial news publications. Actually, never mind. That doesn’t explain why the dangers of 3-D printing being used to create handguns is more important to BV‘s readers than a conflict involving the IRS. Since that scandal broke last week, BV has published… one editorial about it.

We’ve requested comment from the BV editorial board.
