Michael Bloomberg has a small but highly questionable advantage in the 2020 presidential election, according to the Financial Times, amedia outlet, when he enters “Mike” in nearly 325,000 news terminals owned by his company worldwide. will be transferred to the candidate’s campaign website.

In response, a Bloomberg spokesman told The Verge that it would now turn to Bloomberg’s personal page when you enter “Mike.” He also said the previous situation was a no-nonsense, and said it was a tradition since the 1990s to enter “Mike” to Bloomberg’s personal website. In other words, it has nothing to do with this presidential campaign. Bloomberg’s personal website has never previously reported on his presidential candidacy but focused on his charitable work, according to a spokesman. The spokesman said it was a mistake for them not to change the redirect when the nature of their website changed.

Moreover, it is not that the redirect of the Bloomberg terminal will certainly bring great benefits to Mr. Bloomberg’s candidacy. After all, only 325,000 users of these expensive terminals, which cost $20,000 a year, are in the U.S. and most of them are stock traders and news publishers who are aware of Bloomberg’s candidacy for president of the United States.
