Bloomberg reporters allegedly spied on Wall Street using Bloomberg terminals

Bloomberg reporters have been keeping tabs on Wall Street using their company’s financial terminals, the New York Post reports. Bloomberg terminals, which cost $20,000 a year or more to lease, are a fixture in the banking world. But according to the Post, Goldman Sachs executives recently discovered that reporters could track when investors were logging into the terminals, as well as what they were doing — from looking at a wire story to using the messaging tool. In one case, a reporter apparently asked a Goldman Sachs executive whether a partner had left the bank, mentioning that he hadn’t been logging into his terminal.

As if their anti-Apple bullshit wasn’t enough. The entire organization is apparently a colossal seething pile of douchebags.

    Of course the difference being that the anti-Apple stuff is just run-of-the-mill douchebaggery. This is something someone can go to jail for.
