Bloomberg project lures in "Game Change" journos

May 06, 2014

Bloomberg News will soon welcome John Heilemann and Mark Halperin to start Bloomberg Politics, a new site focused on American politics and policy. You'll recognize Heilemann and Halperin as the authors of the best sellers “Game Change” and “Double Down,” and soon you'll be seeing them not only write articles and report live events, but also anchor a daily television program that will also stream online.

Halperin and Heilemann shared the news via identical tweets on their respective accounts: "Excited to be working w/ @Justin_B_Smith, @Tyrangiel & our new colleagues on Bloomberg Politics. Read all about it."

Even Jose Conseco took note: "Hey buddies @markhalperin @jheil Game Change was the Juiced of presidental politics."

This Heilemann retweeted and added, "I can now die happy."
