The first notable coverage of the 2015 Bilderberg conference by media outlet Bloomberg unsurprisingly omits the attendance of its editor-in-chief John Micklethwait.
A video article entitled, “Here’s Who’s Going to The Secret Bilderberg Summit,” which features a brief synopsis of the group’s 63rd gathering, fails to mention the numerous high-profile media attendees.
“The Bilderberg summit, an annual gathering of some of the most powerful people in the world starts on Thursday. Here’s who got an invite,” the article states.
Micklethwait, who joined Bloomberg after stepping down as The Economist’s editor-in-chief in 2014, has been a regular attendee of the group since at least 1996.
Despite attending for the better part of two decades, Micklethwait, as the Bloomberg video states, will remain tight-lipped due to Bilderberg’s policy of secrecy.
As noted in Infowars’ Adan Salazar’s breakdown of media representation at this year’s meeting, Bloomberg’s coverage of the event has been superficial at best “despite boasting over 5,000 daily articles and over 150 bureaus worldwide.”
Since its inception, the Bilderberg group has cozied up to a wide range of media personalities who, instead of performing their roles as adversarial journalists, have chosen to toe the establishment line.
“In the past, darlings of the corporate media have attended Bilderberg meetings,” wrote Infowars Kurt Nimmo in 2008, “including the late Peter Jennings of ABC, Joseph C. Harsch of NBC, the ‘liberal’ Bill Moyers of PBS, the ‘conservative’ William F. Buckley, Jr., Robert L. Bartley of the Wall Street Journal, the neocon William Kristol, Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times, the late Katharine Graham of the CIA’s favorite newspaper, the Washington Post, Leslie Stahl of CBS, and many others.”
Infowars, which remains one of the few media outlets on the ground in Austria for this year’s meeting, will continue to provide extensive Bilderberg coverage throughout the week.
