Bloomberg editor quits after story spiked

Video from Sunday's "Reliable Sources:" Ex-Bloomberg editor Ben Richardson tells Brian Stelter why he decided to leave the company in response to the spiking of a story about hidden financial ties between the families of Chinese officials and a wealthy businessman. A spokesman for Bloomberg declined to comment on the story or on Richardson's resignation.

    Ben Richardson should be seen as a hero to both journalists and all Chinese. He certainly has my respect. Bad move on the part od Bloomberg, but good that it is getting some media attention. This story deserves more.
