Bloomberg Continues Sugar High Amid Layoffs

Bloomberg Government has balls, we’ll give them that.

Earlier this week, the company announced they were headed to Dupont Circle in a “Goodies” truck to offer treats to readers. The company declined to comment on how such an act might look insensitive amid a recent report of some 100 editorial employees in the Washington and New York bureaus.

On Thursday they were at it again — this time rolling the “Goodies” truck around Capitol Hill.

How kind of them.

Since Bloomberg wouldn’t answer my questions, The Mirror priced out the potential cost of such a goody truck. The range is 2K to 10K a pop depending on how many people they feed and how long the trough lasts.

Incidentally, the photograph the company uses on its feed includes a sign that reads, “The Sweet Taste Of Opportunity.”

This would be delicious if it weren’t so ridiculous.
