Bloomberg News hosts freaked out after a Columbia University professor suggested that U.S. sabotage was behind the destruction of the Nord Stream pipeline, prompting them to cut his interview short.
Columbia University professor Jeffrey Sachs suggested that the United States, maybe with help from Poland, was behind the explosions that destroyed a Baltic Sea portion of the Nord Stream pipeline during a recent appearance on Bloomberg News.
Speaking about the ongoing global issues that have Americans and others worried about their future security, Sachs, who is a well-respected economics professor, cited “the destruction of the Nord Stream pipeline” as a major antagonist.
“The destruction of the Nord Stream pipeline, which I would bet was a U.S. action, perhaps U.S. and Poland,” professor Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University told Bloomberg News.
That was apparently too much for the corporate news outlet to handle, as host Tom Keene immediately began interrupting professor Sachs, not allowing him to even finish his thought.
“Jeff, Jeff, we’ve gotta stop there,” Keene frantically interrupted.
“That’s quite a statement as well,” the host went on. “Why do you feel that that was a U.S. action? What evidence do you have of that?”
“Well, first of all, there’s direct radar evidence that U.S. helicopters, military helicopters that are normally based in Gdansk were circling over this area [at the time of the explosion],” explained professor Sachs.
“We also had a remarkable statement from Secretary of State Blinken last Friday in a press conference where he said ‘this is also a tremendous opportunity.'”
“It’s a strange way to talk,” Sachs said
“I know this runs counter to our narrative, you’re not allowed to say these things in the West but the fact of the matter is, all over the world when I talk to people, they think that the U.S. did this,” said Sachs, as Bloomberg producers scrambled to get him off the air.
“And by the way, even reporters in our papers that are involved tell me privately ‘well of course [the US blew up Nord Stream] it doesn’t show up in our media.”
“Professor, I don’t want to get in a tit-for-tat about what did or didn’t” happen, another Bloomberg host interjected as they quickly ended the segment with professor Sachs.

Though Bloomberg News couldn’t handle the speculation from professor Sachs, a Swedish investigation has shown that the most likely cause of the Nordstream explosion was “gross sabotage.” Further investigations are expected to be carried out in the coming days and weeks, though it isn’t expected that the general public will ever get a straight answer on what really happened.
