Behind the Scenes at Bloomberg Television

Gabe Sherman examines the evolution of the Bloomberg media empire in the latest issue of New York magazine. Tucked into the piece are a few  interesting details about the television operation:

Part of the problem is that [Bloomberg News editor in chief Matthew] Winkler remains resistant to adopting some of the entertainment values that could attract an audience.

 

Last year, producers inserted a clip from The Princess Bride into a segment about the wild volatility in the market. “Winkler went batshit,” one person familiar with the matter said. “He wrote out a note saying that we shouldn’t mix fiction with news.” (“I think news should always be about the facts,” Winkler says. “You shouldn’t mix fiction with nonfiction; it’s oil and water.”)
