Spotlight: Bloomberg View

Founded in 2011, this is the opinion arm of Bloomberg News, which of course is a key enterprise of the ever-expanding Bloomberg media conglomerate. Laura Bennett’s December 2013 profile of Bloomberg View in New Republic traces its bold ambitions and uncertain evolution over its first three years. That evolution continues in the year since the New Republic piece, and presidents might find a welcome mat there as Bloomberg View continues to expand its offerings.

“We certainly will consider opinion pieces [from presidents],” says Alex Bruns, digital content producer at Bloomberg View. “We typically run op-eds between 800 and 1,000 words. The best way to reach us is to send the op-ed either to me directly (abruns@bloomberg.net) or to oped@bloomberg.net with the full text pasted into the body of the message, rather than as an attachment.”
