Synopsis on Bloomberg article:

Bloomberg wants smoking banned in apartment buildings and private homes so he can have full control over individuals and get rid of those annoying property rights.
Since it's propaganda, it includes supposed smokers arguing in favor of such a ban on themselves smoking inside their very own homes.
It includes prideful statistics that the anti-smoking hate campaign has managed to whip up so much hate that over 300 emergency phone calls go into NYC's 311 semi-emergency hot-line monthly to report people who are commiting the crime of smoking a cigarette from those hateful people encouraged to report such dissidence to the NYC Stasi.
Bloomberg is shown like a proud peacock in a press conference announcing his grand plans to crack down on smokers for the crime of smoking even more.
The press applauds him.
