Trouble at Bloomberg?

Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan writes about “trouble” at Bloomberg…

How paranoid are Bloomberg staffers? We’ve already heard that they can’t leak documents because “every email… in or out is tracked.” Bloomberg’s internal security force, employees believe, actively monitors employee communications—not only by reading their emails, but by keeping them under constant video surveillance at work—which serves to keep employees terrified.

    Melissa Francis left CNBC for FBN.
    Lori Rothman left Bloomberg for FBN (might be more than a year ago).
