His business news broadcasting network has expanded profitably in the Middle East, with offices in Dubai, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. The Dubai office has doubled its staff. The Middle East region is a growing profit center, whereas, reportedly, other Bloomberg TV regional centers have been "taking a bath." It is fair to speculate about the extent to which financial interests have defined Mayor Bloomberg's position on the proposed Ground Zero mosque and community center, as Middle East sources are likely to be involved in its financing, as they have been in other mega-mosques in the US. Offend those sources and they might cut off Bloomberg TV's ear--financial Sharia.
