Bloomberg.com Launches Politics Vertical, Blog

Bloomberg.com is getting more political. It has launched a politics vertical and a blog, titled Political Capital, which is actually pretty clever, so just shut up. The politics page will feature headline news, video content from Al Hunt, and more.

The blog — helmed by Mark Silva — will highlight the connection of money and the government. We bet you didn’t even know money had any influence over our politicians, but it’s true!

“Our content leverages Bloomberg’s unmatched depth in data analysis and visualization, informing voters and political and business leaders with fact-driven intelligence about the intersection of American politics and the economy,” Silva humbly said, via Bloomberg. “Our reporting comes from a Washington operation unmatched in size and scope, our data from a global information-gathering organization.”
