Bloomberg journalists will no longer have access to login information and other data from its terminals after a major client complained yesterday. Goldman Sachs conveyed that they were worried that journalists working in the newsroom may be reporting on the type of financial information Goldman employees were looking at on their screens. The access was blocked 24 hours after the complaint was made. A Bloomberg spokesman said no journalists ever had access to security-level data.
