Earlier today, Mark Decambre of the New York Post broke a bombshell story:
Reporters at Bloomberg News used private information from Bloomberg terminals to spy on employees at Goldman Sachs.
And now it's clear that Bloomberg reporters used private terminal information to report on at least one other firm, too.
Wall Street firms pay Bloomberg millions of dollars a year to buy Bloomberg terminal accounts for their employees.
Until recently, Bloomberg News reporters with access to these private Bloomberg systems could see when specific Bloomberg clients were logging on and off and various search functions they use.
The Post's story revealed that reporters at Bloomberg News used this private information to spy on the activity of individual Goldman partners and use the information they discovered in developing Bloomberg news stories.
