Bloomberg News Whines: Annual Buffett Letter Didn’t Address Racial Politics

Apparently, liberal billionaires like abortion megadonor Warren Buffett aren’t allowed to remain silent on toxic racial politics without enraging the easily triggered liberal media.

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett released his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway’s shareholders February 27. Bloomberg News reported Feb. 25 that Buffett had stayed quiet in 2020 amidst “a heated presidential election” and “a racial reckoning that sparked nationwide protests.” The outlet hoped that Buffett would have “a chance to break his silence with the release of his annual letter Saturday.” When the letter was released, Bloomberg News was enraged the billionaire still chose to steer “clear of politics” in a follow-up article with a blaring headline: “Buffett’s ‘Tone Deaf’ Annual Letter Skirts Major Controversies.” The article whined: “His silence on pandemic, racial inequality disappointed some.”

But it got worse. In the second paragraph, Bloomberg News threw a fit that Buffett “steered clear of politics, despite the contested presidential election and riots at the U.S. Capitol, and never touched on race or inequality even after protests and unrest broke out in cities across the nation last year.”

The outlet called the Jan. 6 event at the U.S. Capitol “riots.” But Bloomberg News referred to the 2020 Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots that ripped across multiple U.S. states costing between $1 billion and $2 billion in damages as simply “protests and unrest.” [Emphasis added.]

Buffett’s multimillion-dollar commitments to extremist leftist causes like abortion weren’t enough to buy him the good graces of Bloomberg News.

In 2019, reporting showed that Buffett’s philanthropic foundation had funded the baby slaughter giant Planned Parenthood with at least $76,967,256 between 2017 and 2018 alone.

A 2011 estimate by Planned Parenthood stated that the cost of a first-trimester abortion can range anywhere from $350-$950, meaning that the $76.9 million the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation gave to these organizations was enough to pay for between approximately 81,018 to 219,906 first-trimester abortions.

Between 2001 and 2012, Buffett had financed abortion groups with a jaw-dropping $1,230,585,161.

Unless you vocally let the world know you’re woke, you’re apparently not liberal enough, at least by Bloomberg News standards.

Conservatives are under attack. Contact Bloomberg News at letters@bloomberg.net and demand it stop peddling leftist racial politics in its reporting.
