Bloomberg top editor apologizes for snooping

BLADE NEWS SERVICES

NEW YORK — The editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News apologized Monday for the financial news service’s practice of accessing private data on clients through the firm’s information service.

Journalists at the service could see when clients last accessed their Bloomberg information terminals and what categories of functions they used.

The Federal Reserve is looking into whether the journalists tracked data about terminal usage by top Fed officials.
